UHT milk in tetrapak directly from 8 dairy farmers who have joined together in a cooperative to obtain a fair price for their milk. Not the international market price, which does not allow them to liv...e. These 8 producers therefore founded their own cooperative with the aim of marketing a high value-added pasture milk. It took them three years of work to draw up the specifications, find a processor and outlets. And to choose a name for their brick. It will be Lait de la Baraque.
This cooperative is a little different because of its size and the decentralisation of its processing. The processing is done in Flanders at the only one that has agreed to take their milk. This milk will only be marketed in short circuits, via cooperatives and grocery shops like ours.
The cows are grass-fed, GMO-free and soya-free. The cows are reared according to traditional methods and are linked to the land, respecting the environment and the well-being of the animals. In a production year, the dairy cows are fed a minimum of 60% dry matter from grassland in the area concerned. The objective is to reach 70% within 5 years. 70% of the fodder will be produced in the delimited area (Vielsalm, Lierneux, Gouvy, Houffalize, La Roche, Erezée and Manhay). 70% of the grassland will be permanent in order to preserve the carbon storage in the soil.
Conservation: After opening, can be kept for another 3 days in the refrigerator.
