Meadow milk certification
Qlip is recognised as a certifying body by the Grazing Foundation. Our farm assessors and auditors meet the criteria for conducting inspections and audits in the field of meadow milk. Qlip provides meadow milk certification on the level of dairy farmers, logistics and dairy processors.
What is meadow milk?
Meadow milk comes from farms where the cows are free to roam in meadows for at least 120 days each year, from spring through to autumn, and for at least 6 hours a day. In modern dairy farming it is not self-evident that cows are free to graze from spring to autumn.
How does the meadow milk logo work?
The meadow milk logo guarantees that dairy products have been made from meadow milk. This milk is collected and processed separately into daily fresh dairy products, including milk, buttermilk, custard, yoghurt and cheese. The Grazing Foundation warrants the production process, the transportation and the processing of the meadow milk. The logo is available to producers who satisfy the relevant conditions.
