Where does Daioni Organic come from?

Laurence took over his parents’ 150-acre farm in 1970 and expanded it to over 3,000 acres of fertile pasture. In 1999, the farm was converted to organic production. Since then, Laurence and his team have continued to add value to their premium quality dairy produce culminating in the launch of the Daioni Organic brand.

Does all Daioni Organic milk come from the family farm?
Daioni products are all made from organic milk produced by our own farms and other British farms registered with the UK Soil Association – to ensure a steady supply of quality organic milk.

detailed audits by the Soil Association to ensure they comply with strict regulations.

Does Daioni Organic inject cows with antibiotics?
We do not routinely inject our cows with antibiotics as is sometimes the practice in intensive farming. Routine antibiotic injection is banned under organic standards and the only time antibiotics are used are if a cow becomes ill or has an injury that cannot be effectively treated with natural medicine. In that instance, the cow being treated would be separated from the herd to undergo treatment and milked separately until she has recovered and all traces of antibiotics have left her system and she can re-join the herd.

Our milk drinks were designed to be a healthy alternative to sugary drinks and have been schools approved in the UK. This means that we make our flavoured milk as healthy as possible- no artificial colours or preservatives, only naturally derived flavours, low fat (made with semi-skimmed organic milk) and less than 5% sugar. Even better, of the sugar present less than half is added organic cane sugar and the rest is natural sugar already present in milk!
What is Long-Life/ UHT milk?
Does Daioni Organic Long-Life milk contain preservatives?
Our Long -life milk has been Ultra Heat Treated. This extends the shelf life without the use of preservatives until the bottle is opened at which point it must be treated as fresh milk, refrigerated and used within three days.
