Cabot Creamery Cooperative
Sustainability & Cabot Creamery
At Cabot Creamery, we understand “Sustainability” to be "living within our means and ensuring the means to live.” Our fundamental approach to stewardship and social impact is based on the triple bottom line of social, environmental and economic impacts. Our approach is called context-based sustainability. The scope of our sustainability efforts runs from farm-to-fork, but we realize our greatest influence is from the cow to the creamery and from the creamery to our customers. Our cooperative’s typical member/owner is a multi-generational dairy farm family, a trend we endeavor to extend for a long time to come.
Cabot Creamery is the first dairy cooperative to achieve B Corporation Certfication, a validation of our attention to environmental and social impacts on stakeholders. We join a growing legion of successful cooperatives, fellow Northeast organizations and forward-thinking national brands that have been certified by the non-profit, B Lab. Certified B Corporations are businesses around the globe that meet rigorous and independent standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. http://www.bcorporation.net/cabot
Cabot Creamery Cooperative is owned by dairy farm families throughout New England and upstate New York. Best known for making the “World’s Best Cheddar,” we value our cooperative roots, which date back to 1919. Cabot is proud that all profits from sales of Cabot’s award-winning line of dairy products go to support our dairy farmers.
