Organic Dairy Report and Scorecard

January 19th, 2008

ATTENTION: The new dairy report and scorecard will be public in late summer 2018. Please check back, or feel free to send an email for a personal announcement of its publication: [email protected]

Originally published in 2008, elements of the report have been updated, and we have
worked hard to keep the organic dairy brand scorecard current.

The Cornucopia Institute’s national survey of organic products in the dairy case showcases ethical family farm producers and exposes factory farm producers and brands that threaten to take over organic dairying. With this Web-based rating tool, you can see which brands and dairy products found in your region are produced using the best organic farming practices and ethics. Based on a year’s research into the organic dairy business, the scorecard rates approximately 110 different organic dairy brands and private-label products.

Maintaining the Integrity of Organic Milk will empower consumers and wholesale buyers who want to invest their food dollars to protect hard-working family farmers that are in danger of being washed off the land by a tidal wave of organic milk from the rise of factory mega-farms.
