Success! Factory Farm Dairy Supplying Horizon Loses Organic Certification


OCA
ALERT UPDATE: SUCCESS!
FACTORY FARM DAIRY SUPPLYING HORIZON LOSES ORGANIC CERTIFICATION

After more than a year of efforts to raise public awareness, the
OCA and the Cornucopia Institute celebrated a major victory last
week when, for the first time, a massive 10,000 head intensive confinement
California feedlot dairy had its organic certification suspended.
Prior to OCA’s boycott, this factory farm supplied Horizon Organic.
"This is a big victory for the farm families around the country
who work so hard to create milk and dairy products that meet a high
ethical standard," said Mark Kastel, Cornucopia’s senior farm
policy analyst. The Cornucopia Institute says that the good news
about organic dairy products is that the vast majority are produced
with high integrity and meet the spirit and letter of the organic
law.
