Open Country Dairy


Who we are 

Open Country Dairy represents the very best of the New Zealand dairy industry. Our story is a fantastic story of growing from small origins to becoming the largest independent dairy processor in New Zealand and the second largest global exporter of whole milk powders.

We form partnerships by choice with our farmers and customers driven by the passion to meet our customer’s needs. Our high-quality dairy ingredients are valued by manufacturers and repackers around the world for their taste, consistency, and functionality.

Open Country Dairy was founded in 2004 and is continuing to grow and evolve. In 2016 we extended our range to include organic milk at our Awarua (Southland) manufacturing site. The full organic certification on farms and on-site was received in November 2018. We are proud to now be able to offer Organic Whole Milk Powders with the following certifications:
