Our steps to protect the planet

Our steps to protect the planet

By applying sustainability criteria to our farming and manufacturing processes, we show true commitment to the future. 

Reducing our farms' carbon footprint

The aim of this scheme is to achieve a 20% cut in greenhouse emissions from our dairy farms by 2025. As part of this process, assessments are performed on farms, raising farmers' awareness of good environmental practices, while also helping them measure their farm's carbon footprint and ultimately prepare a carbon action plan. They might then choose to implement measures like improving their fodder quality or introducing legumes in order to reduce fertiliser input. As a result of such actions, Paysan Breton farmers have managed to reduce their carbon footprint below the French average.

  • Over 54% of our farmers already own energy saving equipment.


Milk pre-coolers are one such technology enabling a 50% cut in the power consumption of milk tanks vital for storing milk at +4°C between milking and collection.

Promoting biodiversity and protecting natural resources

  • Our farmers create embankments, which help maintain biodiversity.
  • We're also taking steps to eco-design our packaging and reduce its environmental impact. For instance, we've opted to move to recyclable packaging made of FSC-certified packaging paper and cardboard sourced from sustainably managed forests.
  • Furthermore, we're committed to fighting food waste and thus preserving natural resources:


Paysan Breton has signed product donation agreements with around fifteen French charities.

We have also signed the Too Good To Go pact committing us to tackle food waste by informing consumers about expiry dates. Moreover, our website includes numerous low-waste recipes.
