The Journey of making the best quality milk- Alaska Milk

I am glad to know that one of my trusted brand Alaska,  go through a meticulous processes and thorough methods because they are partnered with RFC. 

RFC is a global top 5 dairy company with over 130 years of experience in producing milk. The 11.1 billion Euro company is composed of dairy cooperatives with about 19,224 member-farmers from The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium. The farmers are rewarded based on their system and on the quality and safety of their milk. Every milk delivery is tested and farmers are paid according to composition, safety and quality, and system, leading to improvement of quality and safety metrics over time.

Believing that there are no shortcuts to producing good milk, RFC’s Grass to Glass process carries with it the gold standard in milk production – from farming, milking, collecting, processing, packaging and all the way to distributing – putting special emphasis on food safety, quality, labor safety, and the environment.

Cows Treated Like Royalty

Known for its green meadows, blue skies, and pristine lakes, the RFC farms located across Europe are havens for cows that are practically treated like royalty. They graze on nothing but the freshest, cleanest grass across farmlands six hours a day, 120 days a year. In some farms, the water is analyzed more frequently but the minimum requirement is, at least, once a year to ensure that there are no contaminants or water-borne diseases the animals could catch.

Because healthy cows mean premium, quality milk, each cow has a code attached to the collar to help veterinarians track the animal’s health regularly.

While traditional farming is still practiced, RFC transits farmers in the best technologies to ensure that benefits generated from modern dairy farming are optimized. The milking equipment are also checked regularly to ensure they are in tip-top shape.

Complete Confidence

After milking, eight quality parameters must be fulfilled to ensure adherence to RFC’s standards of quality. Among these parameters are temperature and color, bacterial count, antibiotics, etc.

Once they pass these parameters, the milk is assigned a code for easier monitoring during the entire process before it is transported to high-tech factories across Europe and Asia and exported to over 100 countries all over the world to more than a billion consumers.

Before leaving the factories, the milk is tested to ensure its safety and quality and is, then, assigned a final code before being used for its products that are exported to over 100 countries all over the world and used by over a billion consumers.

Rich analyses, protocols – all these careful processes are carried out to ensure that RFC produces impeccable products. Thus, mothers all over the world who prepare milk for their children can be confident that they are providing the best for their families.
