Who we are

Our purpose

We pioneer the future of dairy for good.

Our culture, driven by our pioneering spirit, disrupted the dairy and infant milk formula industry.
At every point The a2 Milk Company rethought how to do dairy.

We do this by pioneering:
— science and innovation to make dairy accessible again
— the ability to rethink every element of the dairy industry
— paying the supply chain fairly to maintain trusted and loyal relationships

What is the a2 Milk® difference?

Conventional cows’ milk contains two main types of beta-casein protein, A2 protein and A1 protein – our branded milk is different from conventional cows’ milk because it comes from cows selected to naturally produce only the A2 protein type and no A1.

But the a2 Milk® brand is much more than just a difference between A1 and A2 protein types.

Our brand stands for a series of wonderful qualities from where we source our milk, the extra special care we take from cow to consumer, and how we educate and engage with our consumers.

That’s why there is only one a2 Milk® from The a2 Milk Company.
