We want to encourage agriculture that is sustainable and sound, and to continue to raise standards, taking care of people and ensuring their well-being.
Origin of our milk
We guarantee that our cheeses, yogourts, butters, parfaits and creams, whether they are made of regular milk, organic or goat milk, are supplied by local farms based within a radius of 60 km from our production facilities, or by Les Producteurs de lait du Québec (PLQ). Our organic, cow, and goat milks are 100% Canadian. Moreover, all milk protein concentrate is ultrafiltered directly at our plant in Sorel.
Maison Riviera works closely with the goat producers in the Centre-du-Québec and Montérégie regions to develop and raise awareness of products resulting from the processing of goat’s milk so that they can be made available to the greatest possible number of people. Renowned for being easier to digest, goat’s milk and yogourt provide as much calcium, potassium, and phosphorus as other types of milk.
Organic and Pro-Cert Certifications
For the production of its organic products, Maison Riviera is subject to the general principles and management standards of the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) and the Canadian National Standard for Organic Agriculture pertaining to organic production systems.
These management standards stipulate that within the scope of its organic practices, Maison Riviera is required to use organic milk or ingredients from agricultural operations that use an organic production system. This practice contributes to enhancing biological diversity and provides livestock with organic feed and appropriate care and housing conditions that meet their behavioural needs. These farming practices are aimed at reducing stress, promoting good health, and preventing disease.
