‘Climate-friendly’ milk, made from cows fed on a supplement that reduces cattle burp methane emissions by up to 38%, is expanding its presence in UK foodservice.
The milk is produced in Lancashire from cows fed on a cattle feed supplement developed in Wales by Swiss-British agritech Mootral. The supplement, which contains garlic and extracts of citrus, is designed to aid digestion in cows and cut methane emissions.
That milk, owned by Brades Farm, is now available to consumers via a new partnership with GAIL’s – both via its outlets and its online shop.
“Our collaboration in the heart of Lancashire at family-owned Brades Farm has been a great success, cutting methane emissions while boosting milk yields and providing a premium product for the climate-conscious dairy drinker,” said Mootral CEO Thomas Hafner.
“Our objective is to get the highest possible number of farms using Mootral’s feed supplement in the shortest possible time, and our vision for the company is to provide Mootral Ruminant at no cost to farmers. From CowCredits to green milk production, to climate-friendly beef, Mootral’s benefits are apparent across sectors, making it a serious, long-term scalable solution in the fight against climate change.”
GAILS said it ‘prides itself’ in using the best ingredients it can find, and ‘milk is no exception’. “By this, we mean top quality and flavour profiles, and a like-mindedness in caring for the community,” said Romy Miller, Marketing & Commercial Director at GAIL’s.
“Brades Farm Barista Milk stands up beautifully in coffee, tastes great, and champions ethical farming and sustainability. Mootral’s natural feed for Brades’ dairy herd creates a premium barista-made coffee for our customers, whilst making a positive difference to the environment.”
