01 Better Health  & Nutrition

Better Health & Nutrition

Our milk nutrition products provide genuine health and wellbeing benefits for millions of people around the world. They are the result of modern and innovative farming practices, and healthy herds that roam open-air pastures, feeding on high-quality grasses to produce milk with a unique nutritional composition.

Grass Fed Milk


At Synlait, we know that exceptional, nutrient-rich ingredients are the result of exceptional farming practices and healthy herds. Our Third Party* certified Grass Fed milk supply is produced by cows that roam on open-air pastures, cared for by farmer suppliers who are committed to their wellbeing.

Value Propositions

Antibiotics & Hormones Free Standard
Meet the needs of conscious consumers with milk that’s 100% free from artificial growth hormones and antibiotics.

Synlait products are made from high-quality milk produced by cows that are completely free from artificial growth hormone treatments and residual antibiotics – two important points of product differentiation in the global marketplace.

No rBST, No rBGH

In New Zealand, the use of the animal growth hormones rBST and rBGH is prohibited in dairy farming.

This means all Synlait milk is produced by cows raised without any use of the artificial growth hormones sometimes used to boost productivity in other countries,[1] and which are known to increase the risk of mastitis in cows, a leading cause of cow mortality internationally.

Antibiotic Free

For our farmer suppliers, animal health and wellbeing are paramount, which means antibiotics are an essential veterinary tool for combating illness. However, when antibiotics are used all our farmer suppliers undertake rigorous measures to ensure no antibiotic traces reach the collected milk supply.

Practically, this means any animal treated with antibiotics is segregated from the herd and their milk withheld from supply – steps backed up with rigorous testing to ensure the milk supply is absolutely antibiotic free.





Grass Fed Milk Tailored
Add value to products with the proven benefits of grass fed milk. 

At Synlait, we know that exceptional, nutrient-rich ingredients are the result of exceptional farming practices and healthy herds. Our Third Party* certified Grass Fed milk supply is produced by cows that roam on open-air pastures, cared for by farmer suppliers who are committed to their wellbeing.

Grass fed herds feed on high-quality grasses and produce milk with a unique nutritional composition when compared to mixed ration or grain based feed systems. 

The benefits to health and wellbeing include:

  •  A better balance of heart-healthy omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids, with more heart-healthy alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
  • 2-5 times the levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is thought to help regulate immune function, maintain cardiovascular health and provide anti-inflammatory properties
  • Higher levels of beta-carotene – an antioxidant and source of vitamin A that is important for a healthy immune system and eye and skin health
  • Higher levels of vitamin B2, which is known to help reduce tiredness and fatigue.  

*Synlait’s milk pool has been certified by AsureQuality to the Synlait Pasture and Grass Fed standard. AsureQuality is an independent Conformity Assessment Body.


The Made With Better Milk value propositions are continually evolving as consumer expectations and corporate priorities change. We aim to work with our customers on the development of the programme and we have identified additional value propositions that aren’t captured on this page. Please reach out to us directly to discuss you individual requirements.

We’ve classified the value propositions either as ‘standard’ or ‘tailored’.

STANDARD Standard value propositions are those that already exist – things we already do - and that may be of interest to our customers, for use in their corporate or brand communications.

TAILORED Tailored value propositions are those that we can co-develop with our customers. This could be in the form of tailored new product development or collaborative projects on farm or on site.
