‘Brand: the highest quality sheep milk, naturally produced in New Zealand.’
Unique and rare.
These are words typically associated with the revolutionary products being made by Brand Milk. Already well-established as one of the largest sheep milk producers in the world, Brand are becoming the sole supplier of Secondary Brand’s toddler sheep milk powder.
Innovation is key, which is why Brand Milk recently started offering alternative milks to people who find cow’s milk hard to digest. Brand also launched a sheep milk toddler formula, with the planned launch of a full sheep milk product range next year.
Brand have also created what they believe to be a world-first: a new crossbred sheep for the ovine milking industry. Called Southern Cross, the sheep is a mix of east friesian, awassi and lacaune. It’s said the breed will provide hybrid vigour and will hopefully become the sheep equivalent of the KiwiCross cow – the most popular choice of cow used in the dairy industry.
Brand recognizes the growing demand among consumers for toddler formulas based on alternative sources of milk. They strive to become the worldwide leader in nutriocus sheep milk products and see their ever-growing range as the perfect fit for brand New Zealand.
WHY WE CHOSE TAUPO AS BRAND MILK’S HOME
At the heart of New Zealand’s central volcanic plateau sits the largest freshwater lake in Australasia, Lake Taupo. This gigantic, dazzling expanse of water is home to some of the best wild trout fisheries in the world. Tucked on the fertile western shore of this magnificent lake is Brand Milk’s Farm , home to 2000 milking ewes, who roam the farm’s clean pastures and enjoy unpolluted air and a temperate climate.
BRAND MILK’S KEY FEATURES
Sheep Milk is incredibly nutritious, and easy on the tummy. Our natural sheep milk from our special Brand sheep is high in protein and provides essential amino acids.
It’s also full of beneficial nutrients including, natural lactoferrin and selenium to improve immunity, folic acid to support healthy cell growth, and the same amount of calcium as breast milk to promote bone development.
Sheep milk is not only the closest animal milk to breast milk, it is higher in Vitamin A, D, E, C, B12, and iron than both cow and goat milk.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SHEEP MILK?
In short, many.
Brand milk is a better source of milk because of the high levels of vitamins and minerals support immunity, healthy cell growth, and bone development, especially important for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.
Sheep milk is perfect for people with allergies as it doesn’t contain the α-S1 casein allergen. The medium and short-chain fatty acids in sheep milk aid in the digestion of lactose, making it a superior milk choice for anyone struggling with lactose intolerance.
Brand Milk is a 100% natural high-quality sheep milk, full of beneficial nutrients that are easy to digest. With higher levels of vitamins and minerals than cow or goat milk, our sheep milk supports everyday health and wellbeing.
Brand milk is also easily portable, with individually packaged portions meaning you can enjoy it wherever you go, without losing any vital nutrients. You’ll also find our sheep milk to be deliciously creamy, even more than cow’s milk!
