Finnish dairy wins rare environmental honor from China

April 4, 2005, as reported by just-food.com: Finnish dairy group Valio received only the third Chinese Grade A Green Food label given to a foreign company. The Green Food label is given by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture to companys exhibiting product safety and environmental stewardship.

In order to be eligible for the award the entire manufacturing process must comply with a strict list of criterion for safe and environmentally sound production. In the dairy industry this means that the entire chain extending from farm to final product undergoes inspection.
