Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) has received a donation of over £1,100 from Brighton-based The Organic Protein Company after the firm committed to donate 25p for every pack of its organic whey protein produced.
“Animal welfare is really important to us and I am more than delighted that our strong growth has enabled us make this donation after less than a year of operation,” commented company founder Daniel Whitehead. “Compassion in World Farming does a great job in helping improve the welfare of farm animals in the UK and around the world and we will continue to support the organization in the same way.”
Emma Slawinski, CIWF’s head of campaigns, said: We’re so grateful to The Organic Protein Company for not only ensuring that its dairy products are higher welfare, but for helping us to keep fighting the good fight.”
The company’s 100% organic whey protein is sourced from small organic family farms in the rural Schleswig-Holstein region of Northern Germany and is free of gluten, soya and GMOs. “Everything is traceable to the source, from field to pack, including good animal husbandry,” Daniel states. “And, last but not least, the in-pack scoop is manufactured in the UK from recycled milk bottles.”
The Organic Protein Company Ltd has now got its products listed in health food shops, and after a successful promotion at all six Planet Organic stores in January and February the retailer has become a permanent stockist of the brand.
Whitehead says that he is now looking forward to making another donation in the coming weeks.
