All our milk comes from organic local Danish farms, with cows roaming outdoor freely and majestically. Dairy 1888 products are crafted with fresh organic milk, successfully distinguishing themselves from the mass market dairy products found in stores today.
Organic cows in Denmark must have access to free pasture from April 15th to November 1st. Even in the wintertime, the cows must go to open-air areas for exercise. Besides, the feed for cows must be 100% organic, and a major part of the feed must be rough-age coming from the farm's own pasture.
When the cow gives birth to the calf, the baby calf must be given the opportunity to satisfy its suckling need during the lactation period of 3 months. If an organic cow is treated with veterinary medicine, the withdrawal period at our dairy is twice of non-organic milking cows.
Our organic milk powders are mixed and packed under full protective atmosphere at a state of the art equipment from new facilities in Denmark just finished in 2020. Organic certified and approved for export to China and USA.
We have implemented a traceability system so that every single product can have a unique QR code which is blockchain verified. It means every single product from us has unique code so you can verify its authenticity and trace the product journey.
The unique and governmentally certified Ø-label has been very important for the widespread success organic food products have achieved in Denmark. The Ø-label makes it easier to achieve several goals at the same time and it makes a difference. Denmark was the first country in the world to implement a state control for organics. The governmental control was a crucial success factor for convincing Danish consumers about organics. Today, organic products that bear the red Ø-label are highly respected. In 2020, the Danish red Organic label celebrates its 30th anniversary.
In both Denmark and countries, we import organic products from, there is a long list of strict regulations that companies need to comply with if they process, pack, label or import organic products. For example, they must ensure that organic products are not coming into contact with non-organic products. If a company disregards this regulation, they can be fined or even lose their entitlement for the distribution of organic products.
Organic production takes the greatest possible account of nature, the environment and animal welfare all the way from farm to fork. The Danish red Ø label as well as EU’s green organic logo are your guarantee of organic quality. The red label also guarantees that the regulation for organic production have been complied with. Only authorities under the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries carry out inspection under the government rules for organic production. The Danish AgriFish Agency inspects the primary production, while the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration inspects food companies. At least once a year, organic producers have inspection visits.
Out on the farm our trained employees test the milk for among other things the presence of inhibitory substances in the milk, taste, smell, temperature and antibiotics. The samples are in addition analysed by an independent laboratory, just as we continuously test the quality ourselves throughout the processes.
The production plant includes cheesery, 3 cheese processing tanks (Capacity 13 tons 20 tanks a day 3 packaging lines).
