Nutripur’s Nordic Milk™ – Proudly Nordic
There is so much more about Nutrinor’s Organic Milk than traceability. It has the uniqueness of being produced north of the 48th parallel. Simply put, it is our land’s best milk and produced by only 15 organic farms members of the Nutrinor Cooperative.
Sustainable agriculture is behind every one of our milk products!
Seeking to move forward into the future and fulfill its mission to its members, Nutrinor launched, in 2009, a sustainable development initiative accompanied by a top-tier organisation, the Quebec Centre for Sustainable Development (Centre québécois en développement durable (CQDD).
At the term of this rigorous process, Nutrinor committed to integrating sound sustainable development principles in each of its business sectors to continuously improve its environmental, social, and economic performance.
Profitable farms for its members, attractive working conditions offered by a top-rate employer, a healthy living environment, animals in good health and a region’s vitality, those are the sustainable development concepts behind every one of Nutrinor’s actions. In short, the cooperative is continuously working to make sure producers evolve in a positive and constructive framework, protect natural resources such as the land, air, and water, go out of their way to make sure their animals are always in good health, and do their share to take Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean, such a vast territory, to the next level.
Free-roaming cattle and then some!
“Free-roaming cattle” means cows are not tied and can freely move around inside barns. Nutrinor encourages its dairy producers to adopt this approach. Today, close to 25% of its farms, supplying the milk processed by the cooperative, have turned to free-roaming practices.
Facilities with free-roaming cattle have animals that live and behave more naturally. Doing so guarantees animal wellbeing.
And animal wellbeing also means:
- Quality fodder and water in sufficient quantities.
- A suitable, clean, and safe environment.
- Rigorous animal management and handling principles.
- Quality cares to keep livestock in good health.
- Cattle transport in the best conditions.
Milk made north of the 48th parallel
Located north of the 48th parallel, Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean is renowned for its Nordic bio-food products. The region’s geographical remoteness, particular weather conditions and low population density make natural and organic farming simpler. The uniqueness of Nutrinor’s Organic Milk lies in the environment it is produced in and the pasteurization technologies used. It has a longer shelf-life and tastes like no other.
The distinctive climate of northern regions is a determining factor in the processing of our products. And regardless of cutting-edge techniques, practices and knowhow, the location plays an undeniable role in the quality and uniqueness of the products we make.
Located in Alma, Nutrinor’s dairy processing plant is renowned as the most northerly in Quebec. The area’s weather conditions create a very nurturing ecosystem offering numerous benefits.
Nutrinor has nothing to hide!
