Expansion of industrial agriculture has irreversible consequences for nature: Traditional agricultural techniques are being abandoned because of mass production. Alpine pasture farming fulfils extremely important functions for preserving intact natural life cycles, which are at stake because of its elimination.
Through the exclusive use of the fresh whey of the Appenzell goat, classified as endangered, from sustainable regional farms, Appenzeller Naturkosmetik AG supports preservation of the unique mountain world in several ways. The shrinking of the native goat population has been stopped and thus, owing to the endeavours of the Swiss organization for the promotion of endangered breeds ProSpeciaRara (www.prospecierara.ch), the survival of the precious original breed is secured. Environmentally friendly Alpine farming, based on breeding of Appenzell goats, in turn, preserves the centuries-old cultural landscape of the Appenzell highland pastures and maintains the Alpine ecosystem.
With these efforts, we would like to give the future generations a chance to experience Earth as we have come to know it. By choosing LediBelle, you contribute to protecting of our environment and the beauty of the Alps. Moreover, we would like to step up our efforts and support other important sustainability projects.
