New Zealand’s natural environment and farming practices are ideally suited to creating certified organic dairy products just the way nature intended. We have over 70 farmers across the North Island who supply our factories certified organic milk.
Farming organically to produce natural organic dairy starts with a commitment to soil, animal and crop health, and ensuring it’s sustainable for generations to come.
Janet and Stephen Fleming are two of our original organic famers in the Taranaki. They have two farms, milking 540 cross-bred cows a day. They started on their journey to convert to organics in 2004, with the process taking on average 3 years to become fully certified.
By drawing on the rich resource of high-quality organic milk and using state of the art practice, we supply a wide choice of quality certified organic products and ingredients to the world.
The main contributor to our overall carbon footprint is the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from dairy farm production systems, primarily from cows. As ruminant animals, dairy cows produce methane during digestion, emitted mainly through burping. Nitrous oxide is emitted from dairy pasture too, as the urine and faeces produced by the cows and the fertilisers applied are broken down.
