The process of converting pure goat milk into a safe, exceptional infant formula needs to be a gentle, minimal one. We use the whole of the milk and our minimal processing results in a product closer to its natural source.

From our farm to you

Let us take you through the journey of how our world-class infant formula gets to you, with safety and nature prioritised every step of the way. We have even purpose-built our plant solely for manufacturing goat milk formula.

Combined with our cooperative model, we are able to control the entire process from milking to distribution. This way the milk that comes into the plant leaves as a completed product. The result is a safer, cleaner process with no interference in production.

Farming system and code of practice

New Zealand has a strict Code of Welfare for Goats. It specifies what is considered to be optimal animal welfare and how this may be achieved for goats farmed under New Zealand conditions.

Pasture fed

Our farmers know how important a high quality diet is to goats. DGC goats thrive on locally grown, on-farm forages such as grasses, clover, lucerne, hay, silage or pasture plants.

Milk collection & delivery to factory

Milk is collected from our farms and delivered directly to the production facility. We take great care for our milk, ensuring a consistently lower temperature at all times by insulating our milk trucks.

Can filling

The DGC can filling facilities are world class. On any day at DGC we can manufacture over 150,000 cans and fill over 90,000 cans. These are then sent to our warehousing and distribution facility where they await final safety tests before being released for export worldwide.

Warehousing and distribution

Finished and filled cans are held in the warehouse until final, independent testing is completed so that the product can be safely released.

Compliance Leadership

DGC is committed to ensuring that all its goat formulas meet and exceed quality and food standards. Our products comply with all relevant local and international standards.

DGC complies with the following standards:

  • Risk Management Programme (RMP)

DGC operates a documented RMP based on HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point) hazards and control measures. DGC’s RMP outlines safe practices that must be employed during collection of milk on farm through to product manufacture and packaging. DGC’s risk management programme is approved by New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries and regular audits are undertaken by a recognised independent agency.

  • CODEX standards (Food Standards Australia New Zealand)
  • DGC is a Ministry for Primary Industries registered manufacturer and exporter of infant formula and goat nutritionals for children
  • Quality Control Monitoring and Testing

To ensure that consumers receive the safest, highest quality products, DGC completes significant ingredient and final product testing. The testing is completed either externally or internally, depending on the end-product testing specification. Tests can be carried out for physical, sensory, microbial and compositional parameters.
