A partnership with the West Production Association (APBO)
To ensure the freshness of the products and to support the French dairy industry, the production of Babybel is 100% local. The milk used is collected from nearly 700 partner farms located in western France (APBO).
The milk is collected every two days from the 1300 farmers who are members of the APBO, before being transported (on the day of collection) to the Group’s factories. The nearest farm to the Evron plant is only 3kms away!
In 2022, the APBO and the Bel Group extended their partnership for the 6th consecutive year by agreeing on a higher milk price and more sustainable farming practices.
APBO and Bel are thus pursuing their ambition to transition to low-carbon milk, supported by a MonBBlait1 2023 price of €471/1000L agreed for the whole year 2023.
Aware of the environmental challenges we face, the Bel Group gives farmers the opportunity to invest and implement more sustainable and responsible practices. In other words: For All, For Good.
