The a2 Milk Company, driven by science and a 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 today 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. Our vision is to create an A1-free world where dairy nourishes all people and our planet. The a2 Milk Company seeks to achieve this through the naturally occurring a2 Milk difference and by bringing a more sustainable approach to dairy. 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. Many consumers and healthcare professionals report that certain people who experience challenges drinking conventional cows' milk may experience benefits when they switch to a2 Milk. The a2 Milk Company has products and trading activities in Australia, New Zealand, Greater China, North America, and a selection of emerging markets. Our 'BOLD' company values are the guiding principles that shape our behaviour, decisions, and interactions. They serve as the compass that steers us in the right direction and unifies us through shared behaviours.
