Our company is, and always has been, entirely owned by the farmers who provide our milk. 

 

They truly value the importance of quality and consistency. With over 400 farms providing milk for Westland, our farmer shareholders form an integral part of the local community and New Zealand’s second largest dairy co-operative. Our communities look to our farmers to provide environmental leadership, and our milk supply team closely supports them.

Our farmers know that farming excellence depends on lush pastures, healthy herds and sustainable practices. We have one of the best dairy farming environments in the world with fertile soils and high levels of rainfall and sunshine.

Farming excellence will allow us to continue producing genuine New Zealand dairy well into the future.
