Müller targets carbon reduction from milk suppliers

17 December 2021

The company expects milk suppliers to reduce emissions by 30%

Müller UK is targeting a 30% reduction in emissions from supplying farms by 2030. The company has identified three key changes that will help farmers reduce their environmental footprint. They are encouraging the replacement or reduction of soya feed in cattle diets, the use of more natural fertiliser, and increased reliance on genetics in farm management systems.

“We know that shoppers are thinking much more carefully about the choices they make, how and where it was made, the health benefits, the value it represents and how it is packaged," said Jon Jenkins, chief executive officer at Müller Milk & Ingredients.

"With 96% of adults in Britain buying milk, the end-to-end process, from farm to fridge, impacts a lot of lives, and we recognise our responsibility to do the right thing throughout the supply chain," he added.
