Finland: Valio updates sustainability bonus programme

In Finland the dairy cooperative Valio’s sustainability bonus programme for dairy farms has been updated. Previously, the sustainability bonus was two cents per milk litre; now farms can earn an additional cent per litre milk for farming practices supporting biodiversity, for grazing their cattle and providing access to outdoor activity, and for efforts aiming to reduce the farm’s carbon footprint. With the update, Valio will pay its dairy farmer owners, through cooperatives, nearly 50 million euros annually for sustainability actions.
