Morrisons is one of Britain’s biggest retailers of milk, cheese, butter, cream and yoghurts. All of our fresh milk and cream in 100% British, as is the majority of our butter and yoghurt.
Dairy farming is key part of the UK farming industry, and we recognise that British dairy farms have high welfare standards and are some of the most efficient in the EU. The warm and wet UK climate is well suited to dairy production, particularly in the west of Britain, and we want to work closely with the industry to ensure it has a bright future.
We source milk from several thousand individual dairy farms all over England, Scotland and Wales through our dairy processing partners, and with smaller groups of farmers who supply local and artisan cheeses and yoghurts.
All of the farms that supply Morrisons must be Farm Assured to Red Tractor Standard and we actively monitor on-farm animal welfare standards through our processing partners. In recent years we have established Producer Groups where dairy farmers get together with Morrisons representatives on a regular basis to work on issues around efficiency, sustainability and animal welfare.
