OriginOrigin

Theland’s 1 Hour Fresh Eco-Sphere

The raw milk used to produce Theland Farm Fresh Milk Powder comes from farms within an 85km radius of the factory, located within the Taupo region of New Zealand. On average, theses farms can be reached within one hour from the factory.

The Taupo region is home to Lake Taupo, the largest lake in New Zealand. The Waikato River, the longest river in New Zealand, runs through this farming region also.

The electricity and steam required for the factory to produce Theland Farm Fresh Milk Powder comes from the nearby Maori-owned geothermal power station.

The factory uses direct steam injection drying technology to retain the taste profile of the fresh milk.

Made and Packaged in New Zealand

The raw milk is sourced from pasture farmed, free ranging cows (average of 2-3 cows per hectare) from farms near Lake Taupo, including Theland owned farms. 

Theland has 29 farms in New Zealand (16 in the North Island and 13 in the South Island). These farms are operated under strict programmes and Codes of Practice as specified by the Ministry for Primary Industries. 

Theland Farm Fresh Milk Powder sources from farms located within New Zealand’s prestigious dairy regions, at the temperate latitude of 40° south. Within this region cow feed quality is enhanced by long seasons of lush green pasture.

Milking

In New Zealand’s peak milking season (September to January) cows are typically milked twice a day, reducing to once a day in the lower season. During New Zealand’s winter months of June and July, milk is collected from selected farms only.

 Each cow produces approximately 4000 litres of milk per year.

The farms where the milk is sourced from comply with the environmental regulations prescribed by New Zealand's Regional Councils.
