Total Score320

Cornucopia’s investigations have confirmed that these brands are likely not “factory dairies” in the traditional sense of the word. However, partial scores have been given due to incomplete information. This brand may be a good choice, but we recommend that consumers do their homework and reach out to brand representatives to ensure it meets a consistent, high-integrity, organic standard.
