About Us

We started our company because we wanted to help others discover the benefits of whey such as providing a highly nutritious source of protein, and the eight essential amino acids. 

Our whey comes only from cows raised on a healthy natural diet of nutritious grasses, legumes and variable plant species.  The animals are free to move around, and are given adequate bedding, water and shelter. In addition, our cows are never given growth hormones or antibiotics. And all of the dairy farms that supply our whey are committed to the highest standards for humane animal care.

Sustainability

Our commitment to 100% USDA certified organic product is part of our pledge to serve the planet. Our promise starts with the cows raised on sustainable farms, grazing on fresh pastures without any antibiotics, hormones or chemicals.  But our promise doesn’t stop there.  Sustainable practices are part of everything we do.

Examples of The Organic Whey™’s sustainability initiatives include:

  • Processing the organic milk in a plant that uses 40% less energy than a typical whey plant.
  • Recovering and reusing the heat from our boil heat exchange
  • Processing takes place in a building currently in the process of becoming LEED certified with special features including:
    • Native landscaping
    • Rain gardens for storm water management
    • All concrete construction materials (floor, roof, block walls and drier tower) made from 27% recycled fly ash
    • Low energy variable speed drives used in all of our motors (there are 150 of them in our plant so this is a meaningful difference)
    • Natural light in all production areas
    • Motion sensor lighting control throughout the plant
    • No off-gas ink, paint or finishes
