We are a family business with 43 hectares of land and 40 dairy cows in Corcelles-le-Jorat in the canton of Vaud.
I am president of the Faireswiss cooperative for fair trade milk. The involvement in our project is very important to me. We want to show consumers that they can make a difference through their actions. By thinking about their purchases, they have the opportunity to maintain a strong, productive, sustainable and family-oriented agriculture that creates jobs and added value. They also have the certainty that they have access to high quality food, produced in an environmentally friendly and animal-friendly way and meeting very strict production standards.
I believe in the future of Swiss agriculture, and for me the Faireswiss project represents the hope for a future for milk production in our country.
