"We share consumer, civil society, government and investor concerns about the health and welfare of farm animals. And we recognize the link between animal welfare and the health of animals raised for food. A number of our products include ingredients that come from farm animals, such as egg and dairy products. 60% of our dairy sources globally are aligned to recognized dairy welfare schemes meeting our aim to achieve majority by 2020. For more than 100 years, the Philadelphia brand has been pioneering the cream cheese standards to bring great taste that everyone loves. We believe that good quality food only makes sense if respect for the environment plays a key role. To secure high-quality milk and dairy products, we have always put good farm practices and animal welfare at the heart of our continuously improving process. We guarantee the unanimously loved taste of Philadelphia is made of fresh milk from farms we know and trust, of close working relationships with our milk suppliers and of from happy and healthy cows in higher welfare systems that also respect the environment.

We are proud to be recognized by Compassion in World Farming for our efforts to source even more milk from farms with best welfare conditions."

Valerie Thill, Marketing Director Philadelphia for Mondelez Europe

2013 Good Dairy Commendation for UK, Ireland, Belgium and Netherlands.

"At Philadelphia we believe food should amplify the joy of life, that's why we constantly work on the quality of our product to make it more delicious and respect for the environment plays a key role in this. Philadelphia is made with fresh milk from farms that we know and trust. The welfare of animals is a priority for Philadelphia and we are actively working with our milk suppliers to ensure the highest standards. We believe that happy and healthy cows produce the highest quality milk, and the highest quality milk means the best tasting Philadelphia cream cheese.

We are delighted to be recognized by Compassion in World Farming for our efforts to source even more milk from farms with outdoor grazing and the best welfare conditions"

Chrystel Barranger, President Cheese & Grocery, Mondelez International
