Our Commitment to Quality
The quality of our ingredients starts on farm with our premium milk programme. Our farmer suppliers are the first vital link in our quality chain. Quality milk is a critical ingredient for our dairy products. Our relationship with our suppliers is paramount and we know that keeping a strong and consistent supplier base is key to our success.
Quality Dairy Ingredients
At Open Country we take pride in producing premium dairy ingredients from high quality New Zealand milk. Our dairy ingredients are of exceptional quality, in an industry that already has a global reputation for excellence. New Zealand ranks first in the world for food safety and food safety net programmes*.
All Open Country production plants have achieved the highest level of approval from the New Zealand Government’s Ministry for Primary Industries. Final products are tested by independent ISO 17025 laboratory, and we are accountable to the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) through our Risk Management Programme and Plan, plus our HACCP plan.
