Giant is finalizing a clean water partnership with two local organizations – Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay (Alliance) and the Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association (MDVA). The partnership aligns our desire to invest in and have a direct impact on the communities we serve, commit to environmental best practices and commit to conservation compliance to MD and VA dairy farms through Giant’s continued sourcing of dairy by the Maola Landover Processing Plant. Currently, there are approximately 350 farmers who are supplying Giant through the Maola Plant.
The Alliance, MDVA, and Turkey Hill Dairy initiated the first clean water partnership in 2017, which provides resources for dairy farmers to install best management practices on their properties to reduce their impact on local rivers and streams. This new partnership will continue to assist our farmers and our consumers on both growing and purchasing the most clean-stream friendly dairy
