Sustainability is a founding principle and core value of Straus Family Creamery. Organic farming practices are the basis of our sustainability efforts. These practices promote good land stewardship, animal welfare and help sustain family farms and communities. These practices are essential to help support responsible farming for future generations.
At Straus, we continually look for ways to improve our sustainable practices so we can build a better future. This has translated into a wide range of sustainable practices designed to protect organic integrity, reduce our carbon footprint, preserve natural resources, conserve biodiversity, enhance soil and water quality, support family farms and remain active in our communities and our regional food system.
Innovative practices to reduce waste and use renewable energy are the primary focus of our company’s sustainability strategy. These innovations are consistent with Straus Family Creamery’s history of doing business right.
At Straus, we publish an annual Sustainability Report publicly. The report captures our progress in agricultural innovation, climate change mitigation, and the advancement of our mission to help sustain family farms while protecting the planet, local economies, and the people who live and work in the community.
In 2021, we moved our Creamery from its original home of 27 years in Marshall, California, to a new facility in Rohnert Park. The 50,000 square foot Creamery produces our entire line of retail and foodservice organic dairy products made from certified organic milk.
Straus Family Creamery was founded on the principles of sustainability, organic farming, and stewardship of the land. Since 1994, that philosophy has been reflected in our packaging choices.
A Sustainable Sourcing Framework ensures ingredient integrity in every organic dairy product that bears the Straus name.
