The humane whey
The welfare of cows is at the heart of everything we do. Our organic whey is carefully sourced from small organic farms in the UK and around Europe, where the cows are free to roam outdoors on open pastures, feeding on grass all year round. Even during the winter months they’re still given full freedom to roam outdoors, weather permitting of course! Surely they must only be fed grain during the winter, right? Nope, even during winter they’re fed grass and other organic plant material in the form of haylage…basically the same as what the cows graze on during the spring and summer, only in dried form. Year round the cows’ grass based diet is supplemented with a small amount of organic grain to ensure the milk they produce contains healthy levels of protein.
In addition to our policy of only working with farmers who truly care about their cows, we’re giving 25p to Compassion In World Farming for every pack produced. This money goes towards helping improve the welfare of cows and other farm animals in the UK and around the world. Additionally, we have a tree planted for every pack produced to help compensate for the inevitable CO2 emmissions resulting from producing and then transporting our whey protein to the UK.
Traceable to the source
Every stage of the process is recorded, from field to pack, so we’re able to keep track of exactly where our whey comes from. This is helped along by the rigorous organic procedures in place, ensuring each stage is thoroughly documented and therefore a lot easier to keep track of.
All our cheese makers use vegetarian rennet when making their organic cheeses, therefore every batch of organic whey is suitable for vegetarians. Why use animal-based rennet when there’s a perfectly good vegetarian option? There’s no reason to, it’s as simple as that really.
