Intestinal permeability and inflammation

Studies show that goat milk reduces intestinal permeability1 and intestinal inflammation.2Other studies show that oligosaccharides extracted from goat milk reduced symptoms of colitis3 and supported the growth of Bifidobacteria isolated from breast fed infants.4

To date, these outcomes have only been demonstrated in laboratory studies and need to be investigated clinically. However, there was a closer similarity in fecal microbiota between goat formula and breast fed infants than breast milk and cow formula.5

Warehousing and Distribution

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

Once released, the cans are loaded and driven to Port Tauranga for export.

Spray Drying

DGC’s spray drying plant has been designed specifically to process goat infant formula.

Spray drying is the process of removing water from the milk, producing the beginning of the fine powder that is eventually found in the finished product.

Our spray dryers are kept meticulously clean and the most recent, second spray dryer was built in 2015.

Purpose built manufacturing

The DGC plant is purpose-built solely to be a world class facility for manufacturing goat milk formula. Combined with our cooperative farm model, we are able to control the entire process from milking to distribution. So milk that comes into the plant leaves as a completed product.

The result is a safer, cleaner manufacturing process with no third parties in the production process.

Blending

Our state of the art blending plant enables us to add the additional nutrients required to meet regulatory and specific product requirements where necessary.
