Unteregger from South Tyrol makes two Product Lines from one Raw Material: The Milk of their 160 White Goats

The Unteregger dairy produces, not surprising, goat cheese. More surprising is their second product range: Natural cosmetics based on goat milk’s whey. Whey is a very useful and valuable byproduct from a dairy. It sounds like straight out of a business plan. A product produces a byproduct. That again is turned into a product. The Untereggers motif was a bit different; the principle however is the same. Why waste something that is produced naturally, on site so there is no transport involved.

Unteregger Cosmetics - Makers Bible

The Product. It sounds like straight out of a business plan. A product produces a byproduct. That again is turned into a product. The Untereggers motif was a bit different; the principle however is the same. Why waste something that is produced naturally, on site so there is no transport involved. Applied to the skin, the antioxidants and the lactic acid protect our skin from free radicals and rescue it from dead skin cells. So whey is one of the best anti-aging substances at all. Or to say it in Untereggers’ words: “Whey naturally contains lactic acid that regulates pH and moisturizes and protects the skin against stress making it feel as soft as velvet.” The Makers Bible Team, a majority being male, are certainly no experts in cosmetics, but it is the story and the product that convinced us.

The Brand. Unteregger, located in South-Tyrol’s Vals at an altitude of 1200 m. Owning 160 White German goats for the purpose of cheese production. 350 liters of milk, daily. They produce a lot of whey, too. What Unteregger is offering is goat cheese and a cosmetic range based on goat milk’s whey. Handcraft is involved of both of the Untereggers’ product ranges. The goat cheeses’ are a range from soft- to hard cheese in various maturity stages.

Main cheese maker Manuel was a crafter in a previous profession and had worked as carpenter, it was the motif to produce something more unique and from life stock –goats are extremely friendly animals – that let him become a state certified cheese sommelier after completing his training as a master in milk technologies.

Buying Decisions Shape Supermarket Offers. Those can Shape Landscapes

Doing something by hand can change a lot. Buying something handmade out of conviction can do the same. It changes – or has already changed – the way we think. Especially when it comes to our food. What do we buy? Who made it? What can we perhaps grow ourselves? How do our actions and decisions change, first ourselves, then our purchases, then the landscape?

The Revival of Sourdough — Sparking new Thoughts on Agriculture

Every sourdough – that culture of lactic acid bacteria and yeast in a mixture of flour and water – is unique, like a fingerprint, because in every region there are individual bacteria in the air that give each loaf its very own flavour. One person who knows more about the infinite variety of sourdough cultures than most – whose culture is culture, so to speak – is the Belgian Karl De Smedt, keeper and archivist of Europe’s only sourdough library.
