Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM)
In Agropur’s constant commitment to produce quality products for our customer’s needs, we focus on milk quality and food safety. Our customers’ standards for supplying food products have been elevated in the area of animal well-being. In response to this, along with our efforts of continuing to build consumer confidence in our dairy industry, we have implemented Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) for all dairy producers shipping to Agropur.
This FARM program is not pass-fail, but rather an on farm continuous improvement process centered on evaluating animal care facilities, farm protocols and the animals themselves. It has evolved through working with experts from all segments of the dairy industry, including the National Milk Producers Federation and support from Dairy Management, Inc. It has been implemented reaching 98% of the United States milk supply from over 22,000 farms shipping to food processors throughout the United States.
