Ice Cream with a Twist: Better Know Laloo’s Goat Milk Ice Cream Co.

Posted on the 13 April 2011 by Blab

Ice Cream with a Twist: Better Know Laloo’s Goat Milk Ice Cream Co.Laloo’s is on a mission to transform the dairy industry, and they are doing it with ice cream;  Not just any ice cream,  goat milk ice cream.

Yes, goat milk.

“We want to promote goat milk products that can taste good and be good for you”, Founder and CEO Laura Howard-Gayeton says. Using all natural ingredients, Laloo’s makes low fat, low calorie and low lactose ice cream.

So apart from the goat milk, what makes them different? Laloo’s buys and manufactures regionally, minimizing their carbon footprint. The company relies on farmers across CA and WI with under 300 animals. This focus on small farms avoids overcrowding and improves conditions for the goats. Smaller farms are also better for local water and air quality. While this model creates logistical difficulties, it is integral to Laloo’s mission.

Laloo’s has always focused on creating a positive impact. However, they struggled to find a certification that fully communicated their work. One challenge: Laloo’s small suppliers cannot afford organic certification, even though they focus on high standards. B Corp certification stepped in to fill the gap and give the full picture. Additionally, it keeps the company on task when expanding or creating new policies.

Laloo’s strives to be a model for a new dairy industry which relies on small, local farmers. The B Corp plans to grow and expand across many regions. They will also continue to educate their suppliers on best practices.  Healthier, happier goats make better milk, after all.

By improving their farmers’ lives, supporting local communities and preserving the environment, Laloo’s is setting the standard for “good” ice cream.
