Our milk tankers travel over 100 million km per year, collect milk from a farm every nine seconds, deliver that milk to a factory every 24 seconds and we close the doors on a shipping container of product every three minutes. Product that goes to millions of consumers in more than 100 countries around the world.
We’re continuously looking for more efficient ways to produce and distribute this amount of food.
We have set a target of net zero emissions for our operations by 2050, because tackling climate change is a critical issue and we are committed to doing our part to help New Zealand meet its international climate commitments.
Today, roughly a third of our sites rely on coal as their main source of energy. Making the change away from coal isn’t as simple as flicking a switch. In the South Island, for example, there are no gas or feasible alternatives available and so we rely on the use of coal in our plants to process our farmers milk.
