Fostering the growth of New Zealand’s sheep and goat milk industry

Welcome to The Sheep and Goat Dairy Project

Funded through the Provincial Growth Fund, the Sheep and Goat Dairy Project will span 14 months from the end of January 2019 until March 2020.

It will draw upon prior work and look across the value chain from consumer demand to farm supply. The project will identify markets where New Zealand companies can compete, focusing on high value, consumer-ready products such as yoghurt, liquid milk and cheese.

The export opportunities uncovered will inform the farm milk supply and processing infrastructure requirements. Compliance and supply chain will also be considered in determining processing infrastructure needs.
