Whilst our cooperative is renowned for the quality of its products, this respected reputation is also the result of its long-standing and exacting requirements. From producers to cheese and butter production, each and every member of the CLS respects and preserves the centuries-old savoir-faire, which is passed on from generation to generation.
Since 1997, the Quality Guidelines for milk production, established by our cooperative members, have provided a structure for the way in which they raise their livestock. This document groups together a series of good practices which represent agricultural expertise that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Our quality guidelines evolves to take into account significant and structural elements regarding the following subjects:
- Animal feed with NO GMOs and No palm oil
- Animals raised without attachments
- Exercise areas available
- Enrichment provided for the animals
- Promoting soft medicine for animals
- Reduction of carbon footprints on the farms
In addition to its farming expertise, our cooperative establishes and implements milk collection practices which ensure optimal quality for the raw material. The dairy workers collect milk from the farms every 48 hours. Every aspect of the product is meticulously traced and inspected upon arrival in our dairy. Internal and external analyses are conducted to guarantee faultless quality.
