Open Country produces a wide range of dairy ingredients that are used in the manufacture of foods, beverages and nutritional products. The superior functionalities of our dairy products make them an ideal ingredient in many applications, in any climate and under the harshest conditions. 

Open Country operates seven powder dryers and a cheese plant spread across New Zealand’s preeminent dairying regions, with a combined capacity of over 280,000 tonnes of powdered milk products and 40,000 tonnes of cheese.

Milk Powder

Our milk powders are made from high quality, raw milk, which has been standardised, pasteurised, evaporated, and spray dried for consistency. We specialise in the manufacture of milk powders (WMP and SMP) for superior UHT and high heat, heat stable manufacturing performance. Our instant whole milk powders are known for their rich, creamy flavour and are used for repacking without further processing.
