Our members continue to be the main providers of organic milk to the UK liquid and ingredients markets. We’re very proud of our exclusive and long-standing partnership with Yeo Valley, the UK’s largest organic brand. Our members supply organic milk for their entire range, which uses 20% of the UK’s total organic milk supply.
Our USDA organic certification has opened up a premium market for our members’ milk. We have a transatlantic partnership with Organic Valley, the world’s largest all organic co-operative, for the supply of premium dairy ingredients and the sales and distribution of our cheese brand Kingdom, the first and only European USDA-certified organic cheese in the USA.
We are the leading organic dairy exporter to Europe and beyond. We expect 20% of OMSCo’s turnover to be generated by its premium organic export business in 2015.
Always organic, OMSCo has led the investment in UK advertising to create consumer demand for organic milk. As a trusted partner of the Soil Association and the Organic Trade Board, we play a key role in the promotion and protection of the organic dairy industry, from technical advances at farm level to political lobbying.
"Yeo Valley and OMSCo have been together from the start and it’s an arrangement that benefits us both. It’s always been important for us to support British family farms and thanks to our relationship with OMSCo, we’re able to do this successfully."
Managing Director, Yeo Valley
