Bioriginal, headquartered in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, said its Reedsburg, Wis., dairy ingredients facility received BRC certification, meaning it meets the global standard for food safety and quality as established by the British Retail Consortium. This certification is reserved for top producers that exemplify elevated standards for quality, plant sanitation and product safety.

Randy Pierce, plant general manager, said the certification recognizes the hard work and dedication of the entire team at the Reedsburg facility.

“At Bioriginal, we believe lactose and whey is essential to good health and making clean, pure wholesome products is just the responsible thing to do,” Pierce said. “We partner with local artisan cheesemakers from the upper Midwest, who source their milk from local, organic farms, to ensure the freshest organic bovine and goat whey is used as our raw material.”

Relying on some of the latest innovations, the Reedsburg facility ensures that the products produced meet the highest quality and safety standards while also minimizing its impact on the environment.

“We are proud of the work we do at the facility and the products we make,” Pierce said. “By sourcing from local producers, we can minimize the amount of emissions due to transportation. We also use an ultrafiltration process that has minimal impact on the whey during the manufacturing process. The result is a product that is as close to natural as possible.”
