    We operate large-scale dairy farms integrated with our processing facilities in Russia and Uruguay. Our produce is completely traceable, consistent and meets stringent food safety standards.

    In Russia, subsidiary Rusmolco is an integrated dairy business with over 154,000 hectares of land assets involved in feed production, heifer raising, commercial crop production, elevation and seeds. It is one of the leading fresh milk producers in the country with current production of about 120 million litres per year. Rusmolco has established itself as one of the most efficient milk producers in the country with an average production of over 11,000 kgs/cow/year which is over twice the national average per cow productivity while producing some of the highest quality milk in Russia.

    In Uruguay, our subsidiary NZFSU NZFSU manages multiple dairy farms where we produce high quality raw milk which we process into milk powder and other dairy products.

    We offer a full range of dairy ingredients across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia to manufacturers and consumers.

    • Powders – Whole milk, skimmed milk and butter milk powders
    • Fat products – Butter, anhydrous milk fat and butter blends
    • Cheese – Hard, semi-hard and soft cheese, analogue cheese
    • Milk and whey protein concentrates, permeates and lactose

    We have invested in dairy product manufacturing in Malaysia and New Zealand.

    In Johor, Malaysia, our manufacturing facility produces high quality fat-filled milk powder and functional ingredients each year.

    We are also progressing our first New Zealand-based dairy processing plant at Tokoroa. Complete with employee facilities on site, the plant is expected to be fully operational in late 2022 and we will work hand-in-hand with local farmers to produce value-added dairy ingredients.

    Our dairy products are used in restaurants, homes, and kitchens around the world.

    Many small and medium-sized businesses in Africa pack our ingredients into sachets or use them to produce fresh yoghurt and flavoured milk.

    We also sell branded dairy consumer packs in several African countries including Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and Nigeria. These packs include much-loved brands such as ‘FreshYo’, ‘Blueboat’, and ‘Grand Meadow’.

    Given malnutrition issues in many African countries, where possible, and without compromising on food safety and quality, we fortify our products with vitamins and minerals.

    All of these brands have won the loyalty of millions of people since we first launched them, and today they are among the top 3 in most of the countries where we sell them.
