Produced in New Zealand – Enjoyed around the world

Our Products

We produce a range of superior quality dairy ingredients for food and beverage applications for markets worldwide.

The high standard of Open Country milk powders, cheeses, whey protein and milk fats is due to the quality of our farmer suppliers’ milk – combined with modern processing technology and highly trained operators to ensure the consistency and reliability of our products.

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 different types of milk powders for superior performance in various applications. Our instant whole milk powders are known for their rich and creamy flavour profile and superior functionality for use in consumer products without the need for further processing.
