Jumbo Expands '1-Star Beter Leven' Dairy Range

Dutch retailer Jumbo is expanding its private-label dairy range with more products featuring the 1-star Beter Leven quality mark.

The supermarket chain intends to work with a permanent group of 20 dairy farmers, who will supply more sustainable and animal-friendly dairy to Jumbo.

With this expansion, the group is taking another step in making its dairy offer in the Netherlands more sustainable, it said.

From June, the extensive 1-star Beter Leven dairy range will be available in all stores, as well as online.

The range will include skimmed, semi-skimmed, and full-fat milk, buttermilk, and semi-skimmed, full-fat, and skimmed yoghurt in various packaging sizes.


The dairy products will feature a new packaging design for easier identification, the retailer noted.

The expansion comes as a response to the increasing demand for sustainable and animal-friendly products.

The retailer can also share the exact source of its dairy due to its collaboration with a fixed group of Dutch dairy farmers.

Cees van Vliet, COO, Jumbo, said, "We have been committed to making the fresh range more sustainable for a long time and we see the need to accelerate this. This is only possible in close cooperation with our farmers and growers."


"By entering into a long-term partnership with the dairy farmers, we at Jumbo show that we take our responsibility in this. After all, the transition to more sustainable and animal-friendly dairy requires substantial investments, which Dutch dairy farming can only do through intensive cooperation and with a guarantee for long-term purchase," van Vliet added.

1-Star Beter Leven Quality Mark

In 2019, Jumbo, together with the Dierenbescherming, Vogelbescherming Nederland, and Natuur & Milieu, launched the 1-star Beter Leven quality mark for dairy.

The quality mark ensures that products are sourced from farms that ensure better living conditions for animals and follow eco-friendly dairy-farming methods.

The dairy farmers receive a premium for their efforts in the field of animal welfare and sustainability.
