FVE is concerned about a growing trend towards the consumption of raw, unpasteurized milk and raw milk-based dairy products. Farms offer raw milk from cows, goats, sheep, or other animals, without a clear communication of the risks associated with it.

In the context of the principle “prevention is better than cure” FVE is of the opinion that many forms of processing are needed to protect consumers’ health and pasteurization is one of them.
