Origin Earth Drops Price of Milk

Origin Earth Drops Price of Milk

Local boutique dairy company Origin Earth has announced a reduction in the price of their 2 litre bottles of milk.

Origin Earth director, Joanie Williams said “The price that we pay for our raw milk is inextricably linked with the price that farmers receive from Fonterra.”

She went on to say, “As you will be aware Fonterra has reduced its forecast payout for the coming season which in turn has the reduced the cost of our raw milk. As a result we are pleased to be able to pass this cost saving on our Hawke’s Bay customers and as from today, 12 December 2014, the recommended retail price for our 2 litre bottles of milk drops from $5.80 to $5.50. We also feel that this price drop will put our all natural whole milk within reach of even more customers and look forward to welcoming these new customers to enjoying milk the way it used to be.”

Established in 2010, by Joanie and Richard Williams, Origin Earth is a Hawke’s Bay owned and operated dairy company which currently produces fresh cow and sheep milk, pot set yoghurt and a range of cheeses.

All Origin Earth products come from animals which are sustainably farmed on biologically managed soils and have complete traceability.

Origin Earth products are available from selected retailers in Hawke’s Bay and the North Island, the full range of milk, yoghurt and cheese are available at The Origin Earth Shop at 393 Te Mata Rd, Havelock North, and each Sunday from the Origin Earth stall at the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market at the A&P Showgrounds, Kenilworth Rd, Hastings.
