Albert Straus, President of the famous Straus Family Creamery, names responsible land use and environmental stewardship as two causes close to his heart. Beyond extensive steps to certify the farm organic, Straus is committed to using 40-50% recycled glass bottles, achieving six to eight use cycles for each. The family business began in 1941, and now manufactures cream-top (non-homogenized) milk, butter, yogurt and a variety of ice creams, mostly available in the western United States. “We grew last year when most of our competition was declining in sales,” Straus reveals. “We continue to grow, and our consumers are very dedicated to the message of sustainable agriculture and sustainable food systems.”
