Des valeurs fortes
Nos 7 engagements
our farmer's milk
En 2015, Le Petit Basque a décidé de créer sa propre filière de lait de brebis pour travailler en circuit court, mieux maîtriser l’approvisionnement et la qualité du lait.
Aujourd’hui, nous sommes accompagnés par 110 éleveurs dont 43 en agriculture biologique. C’est grâce à eux et à leurs brebis que nous pouvons produire nos bons yaourts et desserts avec du lait de brebis frais toute l’année.
100% southwestern French milk
We are proud to offer you products made from 100% French sheep’s milk from our beautiful regions in Nouvelle Aquitaine and Occitanie.
Our collection area is no more than 400 kilometres, stretching from the Dordogne to the Aveyron.
Short ingredient lists
Since the birth of the Le Petit Basque brand, we have always favoured the shortest possible ingredient lists without additives and excluded preservatives whenever possible.
We develop our recipes according to a strict quality charter in which we guarantee the best nutritional balance, in particular by reducing sugar.
Our farmers are also agronomists.
They produce most of the feed given to their sheep themselves. They cultivate the land to create fodder and leave it fallow to allow the soil to rest.
They are also committed to restoring biodiversity by planting hedges and trees to prevent soil erosion and provide shade for the sheep.
By 2021, almost 5,000 plants, or more than 6 km of hedges, were replanted.
Respect for our sheep
Our farmers look after their animals because “a healthy sheep makes good milk” (to quote a farmer).
They pay close attention to their well-being, their diet, their daily needs, and behaviours.

A more recyclable packaging
Protecting the environment is one of our core concerns, and we are actively working on the eco-design of our packaging.
Today, 90% of Le Petit Basque packaging is recyclable.
We are committed to sustainable development through various environmental projects. Our carton containers are manufactured directly in our production plant and come from sustainably managed forests.
What’s more, we’ve done away with our sleeve packaging for our 4x115g range of sheep’s milk yoghurts.
And we’re not stopping there – there are plenty of other projects in the pipeline!
Support for organic farming
In 2001, Le Petit Basque made a commitment to organic farming by offering a range of organic yoghurts and desserts.
This choice reflects not only a desire to protect the environment, but also a real desire to offer healthy, natural, and simply good products.
Since then, we have helped 4 young farmers become organic farmers and supported the conversion of 48 farms to organic farming.
Le Petit Basque is surrounded by around forty farmers who have chosen this type of farming.
Label PME +
The PME+ label rewards the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) approach initiated by small independent businesses.
Le Petit Basque has been certified since 2018 for its commitment to its producers and the recovery of its waste.
The PME+ label has to be renewed every year and maintains us in a continuous improvement dynamic.
