Committed to our farmers
Paysan Breton is a cooperative brand. And for us, "cooperative" is not simply a label: it's a commitment.
Paysan Breton belongs to the 7,000 dairy farmers who work in the cooperatives which produce the milk used in our products. The aim of our cooperative is to ensure that there is always a market for the milk produced by our members, to guarantee the future of its farms and to promote regional development. As a cooperative, the work we do cannot be relocated elsewhere. We collect all of the milk produced by our farmers and transform it at our production sites in Brittany and Pays de la Loire. Our aim is to increase the profitability of milk by producing dairy products ranging from butter and whipped cream cheese to cultured milk and crêpes.
Paysan Breton is founded on cooperative values: solidarity, responsibility and fairness. All our farmers are dedicated to ensuring the brand's future and play a role in decision-making. The cooperative supports them with the everyday management of their farm, providing advice from milk and nutrition experts, training, IT tools and information on good practice, etc. In some cases, the cooperative can also offer financial support to its members.
Our members' farms are all small-scale, family-run businesses. The cooperative strives to ensure knowledge is passed down through the generations so that the region preserves its expertise and remains dynamic.
Our dairy farmers are also committed. Not only do all Paysan Breton farmers comply with the Quality and Sustainable Development Charter, they are also the driving force behind the implementation of this charter, which covers the main areas of milk production: the quality of milk and milk products, environment, animal health and welfare, development of the region and its stakeholders.
