Milk

Dairy farm

?

4,630 member farmers and partner farms provide 2.4 billion litres of milk to Eurial, Agrial’s Milk division. There are 600 goat farmers and 230 organic cow’s milk farmers.

Over 99% of dairy farmers respect the best farming practice charter or the mutual best practice code for goat farming.

11% of farmers have been auditing their carbon footprint since 2011. Many criteria were studied such as the farms’ food autonomy which stands at over 80% (ability to feed their herd with feed they have produced), cows graze in pastures at least seven months a year, or contributions to biodiversity with preservation areas (meadows, hedges, etc.) representing 150% of the areas farmed. 

Agrial cooperative

?

Agrial helps farmers who supply milk. The teams offer technical and business advice and also tools to help optimise farm management and make the farms perform better. The cooperative has technicians and vets who advise the farmers about how to manage their herd: farming techniques, animal care, feed production. The Milk division also provides a “Cold Farm” service which helps guarantee the best storage conditions for milk in tanks at the farm whilst waiting for collection every 48 to 72 hours. Finally, the Cooperative’s building service offers advice and assistance with farmers’ projects to optimise the farming installations for the benefit of the farmer and the comfort of the animals.

?

With factories near the farmers, Agrial’s Milk division can correctly recycle the by-products of its production processes. For example, pure water from the evaporation process is stocked to be used for irrigation or spraying.

?

7 days a week, 24 hours a day, Agrial collects milk from farms in milk tankers. Over 2.4 billion litres of milk come from the dairy farms. To reduce the tankers’ environmental impact, the milk collection department in the Agrial Milk division complies with ADEME’s “CO2 objective" charter. Since 2014, the business has integrated a process to track its consumption of resources and reduce fuel consumption by continuously modernising its vehicles, training all its drivers in eco-driving methods and optimising collection routes. Over 85% of the raw materials in milk factories come from less than 200km away.
