New Zealand dairy products have had a high profile for many years - travellers may recall seeing the famous NZ butter brand Anchor in many countries. NZ whey protein is also highly regarded, for several reasons.
The first is the natural environment that our cows experience. NZ cows live outside and have a natural diet of lush green grass, whereas cows in other dairy producing regions such as Europe and the United States live inside for at least part of the year and are fed a processed diet.
Another reason our whey is highly regarded is due to the fact that NZ dairy has strict rules banning the use of Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), so consumers can be confident that their whey protein is hormone free.
