Awards Roll In For NZMP’s Organic Butter - Carbonzero™ Certified


Hot on the heels of winning the ‘Sustainability Innovation Award’ at Food Ingredients Europe 2021, NZMP’s Organic Butter - carbonzero™ certified has won the ‘Most Innovative Dairy Product Award’ at the Gulfood Innovation Awards 2022.

Gulfood is the world’s largest Food and Beverage sourcing event. It takes place annually and attracts exhibitors and visitors from around the globe.

This is the first time we have won an award at the Gulfood Innovation Awards, and our entry was judged by industry-leading jury panel against hundreds of others from around the world.

Our submission focused on the work Fonterra is doing across the value chain when it comes to reducing emissions. This includes touching on our new sustainability commitment around net zero, the work we’re doing with farmers through the Co-operative Difference, the game changing innovation underway to reduce methane emissions on-farm and the work we’ve done to move out of coal.

With 72 per cent of global consumers expressing an interest in brands that actively communicate achievements around sustainability, the introduction of carbonzero ingredients is another way in which NZMP™ customers can leverage Fonterra’s sustainability solutions.

Kelvin Wickham, Chief Executive AMENA, says: “Achieving carbonzero certification for products like Organic Butter is a great way for us to help our customers and the environment in the short-term, while we work towards our net zero aspirations.”
