Why NZ whey is the best way!

June 01, 2017

Dairy is the backbone of New Zealand's food and beverage industry. NZ is the world's top dairy exporter and accounts for a THIRD of the world's dairy trade. That's a lot..!

Since the early 1800s the dairy industry in New Zealand has gone from farmers keeping a few domestic cows on bush blocks to being a world leader. No big deal ;) Before the advent of refrigeration, almost all of New Zealand's dairy products were consumed locally, with only a small amount of butter and cheese exported to Australia. From the early 1880s refrigeration made it possible to export more dairy products. Successful product diversification and focus on export markets has seen New Zealand's dairy reputation for premium quality triumph on a global platform, supported largely by excellent technology and food hygiene standards.

New Zealand dairy cows maintain a natural diet grazing on lush, chemical free grass pastures. The use of growth hormones is illegal and the practise of using antibiotics to treat disease far less common. Processing techniques ensure the maximum benefits are withheld in the final whey product during the filtration process. The combination of these factors warrant New Zealand's reputation for the highest quality dairy (and therefore whey powders) in the world. This quality does come at a price but in the context of individual health and wellbeing, we feel there is no substitute! It's the best.

Growing trends and the development of functional foods such as low fat, high calcium, high protein health supplements and products made from organic milk continue to keep New Zealand at the forefront of innovation in global dairy production and trade. With the number of organic farms rapidly increasing we can only assume the quality of NZ dairy products will get even better...better for you...better for me...better for everyone!
