Regen Dairy

The Regen Dairy project will define what regenerative dairy looks like – from the bottom up, and throughout dairy supply chains.

Our shared goal is to engage dairy farmers and food businesses around a practical vision for a productive and profitable global dairy sector that also restores its relationship with nature. While our vision will be global, our solutions will be local, reflecting the difference between farm systems and national climates.

The Regen Dairy project has been set up by FAI Farms and Farmwel in collaboration with a number of global food companies, including Unilever, Barry Callebaut, Arla Foods, Woolworth South Africa and Ben & Jerry’s.

‘Regenerative dairy can help rebalance Earth’s ecosystems, while producing high quality nutrition, and making farming and food businesses more resilient.’

WHY?

What will it take to build a new dairy system that regenerates nature , actively working to reverse global warming and biodiversity degradation

Regenerative agriculture can help to restore balance in nature by reducing global warming, and rebuilding biodiversity, soil health and the water cycle at landscape level. This project will put a spotlight on practices that are delivering regenerative outcomes on dairy farms around the world today.

The best way to mitigate dairy’s global warming impact is to take a whole-systems approach and reintegrate farming practices with nature. By focusing on soil health, biodiversity, carbon sequestration and storage and water management, the dairy sector will be able to continue to produce high quality nutrition and improve profitability.

Dairy Cows - Regen Dairy

“We face two great crises in nature: global warming and biodiversity loss. We must urgently address agriculture’s impact, but we also have to produce diverse and nutritious food to nourish a growing global population. For global dairy to make the transition we need global collaboration. That is why we invite other partners to join and take a seat at the table”
