Our NON GMO Alpine milk

Milk – at the heart of our chocolate and creams

Milk is one of the most important ingredients for our recipes and therefore it has to be of irreproachable quality and sourced from a controlled supply chain. At Loacker, we only use NON GMO milk that is fully traceable. We source part of it directly from our surroundings: the Alps.

First South Tyrolean production plant of powdered milk

Alpine Milk Go to product

In partnership with Brimi, one of Italy’s leading dairy products companies, we have set up “Dolomites Milk”, a new center in Vandoies/Vintl, South Tyrol. The production plant was inaugurated at the end of November 2019. Here skimmed milk powder and whey powder are produced using milk and whey primarily sourced from the Alps as well as being NON GMO as well as Kosher and Halal certified. Approximately one third of the raw material used in the new plant is sweet whey from Brimi. Brimi’s South Tyrolean farmers deliver fresh milk every day to the cooperative. The milk and whey that come from third parties are carefully selected, amongst others, for their origin, the Alpine region, where milk production is managed by small farmers who pay considerable attention to animal welfare.

Traceability and short-distances travels

Its attention to quality, traceability and natural raw materials has always been part of our values and corporate mission. Vandoies/Vintl was not a casual choice for the location. The plant is a strategic location halfway between the Loacker  production site of Auna di Sotto/Unterinn and Heinfels, and just a few kilometers from Brimi. This reduces long-distance travels, a further proof of Loacker’s commitment to sustainability.

This is how we take responsibility for people, for the environment and for our quality.
