Organic on the label is your consumer guarantee.
Organic milk can be found in all major supermarkets – including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Morrisons and Asda – as well as lots of independent retailers.
There’s no need to comb through the small print while you shop; according to EU law, a product can only be labelled ‘organic’ if it meets all the legal requirements to call itself organic. This may sound obvious, but many claims, such as ‘local’ or ‘natural’ are not legally defined . To be organic, it must be registered with a certification body, such as the Soil Association, which will check the farm, the milk tanker and the dairy have all met strict organic standards, and have passed their detailed annual inspection.
If you want to make sure your organic milk comes from British cows, check the label for ‘country of origin’.
It doesn’t stop with lovely milk, though. Milk from OMSCo farms also goes into the production of butter, yoghurt, cream and cheese, which, again, can be found in all supermarkets. Just look for the word ‘organic’ on the pack.How we make milk
