The farmers who provide our milk truly value the importance of quality and consistency. 


With approximately 400 farms providing milk for Westland, our farmer suppliers form an integral part of the local community and our business. Our communities look to our farmer suppliers to provide environmental leadership, and our milk supply team closely supports them.

Our farmer suppliers 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.
