Our Co-op story

We are a New Zealand Co-operative made up of everyday good people who work together to do good things with dairy, good things with the land we work on and good things for the people that our products end up with. 
In Aotearoa, New Zealand, the indigenous peoples, Māori, have a spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other.

It’s a spirit we adapt as New Zealanders, and one we share with many cultures around the globe, that connects and unifies us all.

Our Purpose

Our Co-operative,
Empowering people,
To create goodness,
for generations.

You, me, us together,
Tātou, tātou.

Our Values

We create good through who we are. Through how we think, act and feel. Because we think differently and challenge boundaries. We do what’s right because it feels right.

And then we make it happen, together. These are our values. Our values are us. Like us, they don't work on their own. They work together.

Farming for generations

We want farming in Aotearoa, New Zealand to continue for generations to come that is why we are committed to farming in a way that regenerates our farms and the environment. 

We farm naturally and because of this, we are proud to have one of the lowest carbon footprints on farm in the world. We want to be the most emissions efficient and environmentally sustainable dairy farmers. To do this we are reducing our footprint, restoring nature, and adopting a regenerative mindset.

We believe that food and nutrition are essential to sustain us today and for future generations to thrive. Which is why we take great care of every drop of milk, from the beginning, through every step of the way. It’s our dedication and care that enables us to produce safe and high-quality food, and our dairy know-how and innovation capability mean we can do amazing things with our milk to enhance people’s lives.

We believe that Aotearoa, New Zealand can lead the way. 
Our Co-operative, which is founded by the people for the people can make a difference across the world.
