A newly formed Swiss Co-operative, Sauliamt Fair Milk Co-operative, has launched fair milk products in the Swiss district of Affoltern. The co-operative which has 40 members is part of the Fair Milk Project initiative being run by the European Milk Board and now sees fair milk co-operative having been set up in seven European countries. Each co-operative has a focus on paying a fair farm-gate price that fully covers production costs and enables farmers to run their farms sustainably. Sauliamt Milk is being sold through stores owned by the regional agricultural co-operative and saw most of the stores sell out on day one.
