Australian cows feed on that grass grown by the natural nutrients in the soil and the water from the rain.
Cows in Australia are treated with love and respect as these small factors make huge differences to the taste of the milk.
Products from Australian cows are STRICTLY not allowed to be injected with hormones that would increase the growth rate or enhance its ability to make more milk in a short amount of time as they would cause serious side effects over time for both the consumer and the cow.
Our advanced technology is used to monitor the cows health and activities for its lifespan.
The Australian government, government organisations have stict standards and policies to make sure that farms and breeders that comply with the growth of cows. These audits monitor the actions and processes taken by farmers.
This approach to whole chain food safety reflects:
International requirements under Codex (Code of Hygienic Practice for Milk and Milk Products)
National requirements by Food Standards Australia
State-wide requirements by the Dairy Food Safety Authorities

Dariy farms must implement a HACCP based Quality Assurance Program to ensure that they have the knowledge to operate under the State Dairy Food Safety Authority. Once they have the licence and accreditation, their milk can be accepted by their manufacturer.
The Quality Assuarance Program covers areas such as:
Regular auditing ensures dairy farmers assess food safety risks and ensure strategies are in place to deal with the risks, including full tracability up and down the input chain.
