After collection, the milk travels a short distance to the drying plant in Canterbury where it is made into milk powder. 

Milk powder is blended at a factory in Nelson, incorporating probiotics that are sourced from the USA .

The blended powder is sent to Auckland, in the North Island of New Zealand where final packaging takes place.

The final product is sent to China where Tenda staff-members receive and forward it on for retail sale. No further processing or packaging occurs after Tenda Formula leaves New Zealand.
