Bel supports its dairy producers

Bel collects some 1.7 billion liters of milk a year from 3,200 dairy producers, who farm close to its production sites, and it is committed to encouraging sustainable dairy production. The Group is attentive to how producers ensure the welfare of their dairy herds, regardless of size. In France, all the producers who supply the Group, have signed the "Charter for good agricultural practices". In the Netherlands, producers adhere to the KKM (Keten Kwaliteit Melk) charter. In addition, Bel encourages its Dutch producers to use the "Cow Compass" tool for improving dairy farming management practices. Lastly, when there are no initiatives supported by local trade associations, Bel works to establish a business charter and dairy farm audit, such as those implemented in the Azores and Slovakia.
