Our member adhere to the following quality charters: the “Charte des Bonnes Pratiques d’Elevage” (dairy farming ) and “Au Fil du Lait” (milk production chain).
A producer must meet very specific criteria to meet our “Au Fil du Lait” requirements, notably:
All these criteria are set out in detail in a specifications document. Producers are controlled every year by Lact’Union ARCs (cultural relations inspectors) by means of internal audits, data analysis and records.
In the event of non-compliance or performance variance, a producer may be struck off and lose his “Au Fil du Lait” qualification. It will be returned when compliance with standards is restored.
Thus, in collaboration with the dairy sector, the co-operatives are responsible for the traceability of milk collected, for verifying its quality and guaranteeing food safety.
Our laboratories analyse 8,250 samples of milk every month.
