Today, as the organic industry evolves, Horizon Organic continues to lead with insight, integrity and unwavering commitment to organic principles.

Company Overview:

  • Founded in 1991, Horizon Organic was America’s first national organic dairy brand.
  • Together with other industry leaders, our founders played a key role in helping to develop the National Organic Standards and the USDA Organic Seal.
  • We have pioneered practices for organic dairy farming and land stewardship, and are privileged to work with some of the industry’s top experts in land conservation, organic agriculture and animal welfare.
Toward a Cleaner Planet:
  • Our Idaho dairy was the first large certified organic dairy in the country, and now supports more than 30,000 organic acres (including the cropland supplying feed to our operations).
  • On our Maryland farm, our organic practices have transformed previously mismanaged land with dangerously high phosphorous levels into permanent organic pasture.

  • We have been recognized with an EPA Green Power Partnership Award for our support of renewable wind energy.

  • Through the Horizon Organic Producer Education (HOPE) program, we recruit and support hundreds of organic family farms across the country.
  • 80% of our milk is supplied by 363 certified organic family farmers from 18 states across the country. The balance of our milk comes from our two certified organic dairies in Idaho and Maryland.
  • 228 additional family farmers are in the process of converting to organic through the HOPE program.
Farm Animal Welfare:
  • On our company-owned farms and the farms of our partners, all of the animals that supply Horizon Organic milk enjoy the holistic benefits of organic management practices:
  • A preventive approach to healthcare that minimizes illness by providing a sanitary environment, proper nutrition and compassionate, attentive daily care.
  • Room to roam outdoors and to display natural behaviors.
  • A 100% vegetarian, certified organic diet of active grazing during the growing season, supplemented by certified organic feed.

Flavor Name: ChocolateSize: Pack of 18
I love this chocolate milk--especially in my morning coffee. But $25 for an 18-pack is JUST WRONG! I bought an 18-pack this morning at Whole Foods for $15.99!

For anyone who has a Whole Foods Grocery chain in their area, this same product sells for $12.99/case(18 cartons). I discovered this after I paid Amazon's high price of $25! Maybe they will adjust their price downward if more customers share competitive pricing!

I was happy to see that Amazon offered Horizon products. However, the expiration date on my purchase was "right around the corner" and I had to throw out some of the drink boxes. I would appreciate if Amazon could list expiration date on the site. Then I would gladly purchase here again.

My kids love this milk. Admit it is on the expensive side, but it travels well and the kids will drink it (they won't drink other milk.)
Note: Just went to BJs wholesale and paid 12.99 for the 18 pk. Won't buy from Amazon again when there's such a price difference.

Flavor Name: PlainSize: Pack of 18
Horizon has been boycotted by the Organic Consumers Association and is the target of frequent complaints filed with the USDA because of their poor track record with regard to compliance with organic standards. Since they were bought by 12-billion dollar mega-corp Dean Foods, a large percentage of their organic dairy has been produced at factory farms, some with upwards of 10,000 cows.

I was seriously irritated to discover that something so happy and innocent looking as the jumping cow on the Horizon label was a front for a billion dollar corporation. Much of the reason I buy organic is to support small, organic farms, and to protect the environment and animals from the practices of mega corporations like Dean. Even if Horizon becomes a model citizen when it comes to organic practices, the fact that it's owned by Dean means that if you buy Horizon, part of every dollar you spend is contributing to some of the worst factory farming practices in the country.

Flavor Name: ChocolateSize: Pack of 18 Verified Purchase
My kids have been drinking this milk for years in their lunches and loved it. We bought it by the 18-pack in both chocolate and vanilla.

Unfortunately, the most recent shipment was flatly refused by my kids who are not horribly picky. They wanted me to throw 2 cases out!

The worse news is that after checking with Horizon Dairy to see if we got a bad batch, we found out they CHANGED THE FORMULA! After confirming our UPC numbers, etc. this is the response we received in March of 2011:

"Thank you for your recent e-mail to Horizon Organic®. We appreciate your interest in our products.

We tested the new versions of Horizon Organic 1% Flavored Milks thoroughly and received strong consumer results, specifically related to the improvement over our prior formulas.

While we've received positive feedback, we're sorry you're not completely satisfied with our new recipe changes.

We value you as a consumer and hope we can help you find another Horizon Organic product to meet your needs.

Thanks again for contacting the Consumer Affairs Department."

Buyer beware!

Regards,
KAM

Most regularly packaged milks are NOT UHT treated-- that is "Ultra-High Temperature." Much like Pasteurization or autoclaving, this sterilization treatment significantly extends the life of the product by increasing the time it takes for bacteria to grow in significant quantities in the milk (the bacteria is what makes a warm bottle of milk "go bad"). The difference is these do not require refrigeration to prevent spoilage. These are bottled to be portable and durable, not just consumption. We use them for our daughter's lunches, trips, and general snacks.

It is true at $1.22 per bottle, the cost is ~20 cents higher than you can get at other locations--i.e., the cases are ~$16 at Costco. Still, for those of us that live in remote/rural locations-- it's a really good deal for doorstep delivery.

My son loves these milks and we used to get them for him when we went to Starbucks. I was familiar with the Horizon brand and thought that the vanilla flavor would be fine. I began to notice a few times after drinking this he would say his tummy hurt or he would act sick(really tired) shortly after drinking them. I read the label and saw 29g of sugar...yeah holy cow!

When we serve him a flavored milk I give him Gerbers smart sips, they have vanilla and mild vanilla flavor with 11g of sugar, I think the mild vanilla has even less grams of sugar. He still loves the taste too! I find them in the babyfood aisle at the grocery store.
