About Les 2 Vaches

The mission of Les 2 Vaches, a brand of Les Prés Rient Bio, the French Organic dairy subsidiary of Danone, is to develop the production and the consumption of organic food through the commercialization of Les 2 Vaches in retail stores. Les 2 Vaches is not only a French organic dairy brand, but also a team of people convinced that the agricultural model can be changed, by providing healthier food for the people and the planet. Since 2006, Les 2 Vaches has been committed to developing strong partnerships with organic farmers, and encourage organic conversions. Year after year, Les 2 Vaches has been working on the quality of their products, by shortening the ingredients list, and being transparent on the ingredients sourcing. Not to mention the cows, for which a welfare program has been created. By embracing a joyful and educational spirit we’ve been increasing awareness of organic and sustainable consumption. Les 2 Vaches is not only an organic dairy company but also a company with a purpose : develop a new alimentation model, with more meaning and transparency and pleasure for all!
