Loading Events

Keeley McGarr-O’Brien, agricultural sustainability researcher, explained that increasingly, sustainability labels are being used on many of our food products, including dairy. These labels are awarded by certification standards, with a set of sustainability demands farmers must meet in order for their milk to be included in the standard. Due to consumer and legislative demands, new standards are frequently being introduced in the dairy sector. However, until now little research has been conducted to examine the sustainability claims or the organizations administering the standards. Keeley’s research has tackled this topic, with interesting findings on the variability and the sustainability focus of dairy standards, and potential future developments for the sector.
