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.

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.

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.

Milk collection & delivery to factory

DGC has end to end production facilities on its site in Hamilton, New Zealand.

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. This helps maintain the nutritional integrity of our Goat Milk at all times during transit.
When the whole goat milk is delivered to the site it is checked again for quality before it is processed.

The milk that enters the DGC facility leaves as goat milk formula, in the can that is then sold to our partners’ customers. To ensure the safest possible production system, every element of the production is managed within our single site.

Animal Welfare and Health

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. DGC farms are required to follow the New Zealand Code of Welfare for Goats as well as DGC’s own Code of Farm Practice.
