At Fonterra, we believe there’s so much goodness in milk that it’s like a true super food. 

People here in New Zealand and around the world choose milk as a staple in their diet and dairy is recommended in dietary guidelines as part of healthy, balanced diets for optimal health.

Why? Because it is packed with good nutrients that helps people lead a healthy life.  There’s a unique combination of nutrients in dairy, and they play an important role in growing and maintaining healthy bones, your immunity, the functioning of your nervous system (including your brain), helping to prevent tiredness, maintaining healthy eyes, and so much more.
