Innovation & Quality

Founded in 2008 by food scientist Neil McGarva, Milk Kitchen is an innovative long life beverage company with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Food safety is our highest priority and we are committed to quality outcomes in all areas of our manufacturing process.

Manufacture & Export

We manufacture UHT aseptic dairy, non-dairy, plant-based, sports, and juice drinks into recyclable bottles for the domestic and global markets.

Our superb location in Hawke's Bay allows us to source fresh New Zealand milk from nearby farms for bottling.

With convenient access to Napier Port, the shipping gateway for eastern New Zealand, our customers' products can go from farm to ship within days.

The Milk Kitchen Export Dairy Manufacturer Risk Management Programme is designed to identify, and control food safety hazards based on HACCP principles. Our factory is registered with MPI (New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries) as site number 8341.

Milk Kitchen is also a Bio Gro Certified Organic Dairy Manufacturer, and is certified with MPI for non-dairy beverages export manufacturing.
