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