NZMP, the ingredients division of New Zealand dairy company Fonterra, is proud to have innovation at its core.
That innovation means NZMP customers can offer consumers products that are unavailable elsewhere, and in unique formats thanks to NZMP’s world leading dairy expertise.
More than 3,000 NZMP ingredients deliver market advantage, trusted for their consistency and high performance.
Along with one of the broadest range of ingredients in the dairy industry, NZMP is responsible for 22% of all dairy traded worldwide. NZMP ingredients are sold in more than 130 countries and products made using NZMP ingredients are consumed by more than one billion people.
From milk powders and caseins to whey proteins and other specialised ingredients, the breadth and depth of the portfolio extends from instant whole milk powders and dairy foods through to advanced paediatric and medical ingredients.
NZMP leads the way in R&D out of the Fonterra Research and Development Centre (FRDC), one of the world’s largest dairy research institutes. Recent developments include SureProtein Fast MPC 4868, an optimal source of rapidly digestible milk proteins, and SureStart Lipid 100, a paediatric ingredient used to more closely mimic breast milk composition.
While NZMP is powered by years of dairy expertise, contemporary innovation does not stand still. A glimpse into the company’s future innovation, described by NZMP as ‘transformative’, is exciting.
Innovation can be described as looking for opportunities that will make a difference in the future. Probiotics offer this, with huge potential and emerging research in dairy for gut health, immune function, as well as allergy and infection reduction. As probiotic understanding grows, NZMP predicts a future focus on personalised nutrition where a probiotic could be matched to a person’s genetics.
Probiotics is just one example, NZMP continually looks to the future to anticipate market needs. NZMP’s dedicated global insights team and in market teams stay ahead of changing consumer needs and the team at FRDC continually discover even more specialised and unique ingredient solutions to answer these trends.
