Granarolo organic whole milk is pasteurized at high temperature and packaged in 1-liter PET bottles. Granarolo organic milk is made exclusively from fresh milk produced in organic farms and, due to an innovative heat treatment and refrigerated storage, it keeps its excellent nutritional properties and taste for a much longer time than ordinary fresh milk.
Granarolo organic milk conforms to European Regulation (EEC) no. 834/2007 and subsequent amendments and adaptations, which regulates the production of organic food products and its conformance is checked and certified by the Consortium for the Control of Organic Products. Moreover, the supply chain is managed and controlled entirely by Granlatte Società Cooperativa Agricola and Granarolo in conformance with the requirements of a voluntary technical regulation (DTP 035), whose principal indications are based on continuous risk prevention and the management and analytical control of the supply chain at various points from the farming activities to the distribution of the milk to the points of sale.
In addition, not only the organic milk but also the animal feed, detergents and disinfectants, packaging materials, refrigerated transport, etc. are subjected to the traceability regulations.
