Do you purchase organic dairy products?
The Cornucopia Institute writes:
“The Horizon brand depends on giant CAFOs, milking thousands of cows each, for a large percentage of their production and that impacts the quality and nutritional value of all their products.”
For this and many other reasons, I am not sure I would consider Horizon “organic” in anything but name. They seem to treat their cows inhumanely, and they produce milk not much differently than do non-organic producers, i.e. the cows are often not pastured on grass.
That they can be organic in name is a testament to the corruption of the organic label. Horizon’s violations however go back well over a decade. A quick Google search will reveal this.
Buy Horizon if you want overpriced, industrially produced dairy.
For dairy, Organic Valley is a better bet and has a much better track record.
