From the farm to affinage, we're committed to sustainability.

We turn fresh milk into award-winning cheese every day, but also have a responsibility to act as stewards for our communities along the way.

Farming the way it should be.

In Wisconsin and Switzerland, our farmers are committed to sustainable dairy farming and environmental stewardship.

Sourcing milk from our backyard.

Sourcing milk from our backyard.

Our Wisconsin milk is sourced from Rolling Hills Co-Op right in our backyard in Monroe, Wisconsin. There, Wisconsin dairy farmers follow the National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program. This program raises the bar for the entire dairy industry, which in turn creates a culture of continuous improvement.


The "Suisse Garantie."

In Switzerland, Emmi only buys Swiss milk bearing the “Suisse Garantie” (Swiss guarantee) label. To bear this label, the milk must come only from producers who meet the requirements for sound environmental practice certification, such as satisfactory manure balance and the maintenance of environmentally valuable land.

Reducing our carbon footprint.

As of 2017, we have built an anaerobic digester at our plant in Platteville, Wisconsin which converts any waste into renewable energy. The new home for our waste water is crucial to our efforts in reducing our impact on the local community, the environment and natural resources.
