"Maintaining the Integrity of Organic Milk"

The Cornucopia Institute's national survey of organic products in the dairy
case showcases ethical family farm producers and exposes factory farm
producers and brands that threaten to take over organic dairying. With this
Web-based rating tool, you can see which brands and dairy products found in
your region are produced using the best organic farming practices and
ethics. Based on a year's research into the organic dairy business, the
scorecard rates 68 different organic dairy brands and private-label
products.

Maintaining the Integrity of Organic Milk will empower consumers and
wholesale buyers who want to invest their food dollars to protect
hard-working family farmers that are in danger of being washed off the land
by a tidal wave of organic milk from the rise of factory mega-farms. To view
