OMSCo Wins at Food and Farming Industry Awards

OMSCo Wins at Food and Farming Industry Awards

Leading organic dairy co-operative, OMSCo (the Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative), has won the prestigious Food Chain Marketing Award, an annual accolade promoted by Grove House Publishing. The award, sponsored by Merial Animal Health, was awarded to highlight OMSCo’s pro-active and highly successful work within marketing – which in a year of low milk prices across the dairy industry, has resulted in an above average and secure income for its 250 farmer members.

OMSCo is the only European dairy company producing dairy products to certified USDA standards, and has continued to build long-term relationships with the world’s largest organic dairy co-operative, Organic Valley, in the US. Today OMSCo manages over 250 million litres of organic milk, which accounts for 65% of the total organic milk supply in the UK.

OMSCoLogoThis is another leading award for the cooperative in 2015, with several of its members already gaining recognition for their innovative and sustainable approaches within the farming sector.

“This is the award to win,” says OMSCo chairman Nicholas Saphir.  “We are delighted that our business and marketing approach has been recognised by the wider industry. OMSCo is a highly successful dairy cooperative, and we are absolutely over the moon with this result. We will share the success with all our members, and keep exploring all opportunities out there in the global market place.”
