Te Ara Miraka is our way of operating, the way we do things. Within Miraka and beyond we ensure that our activities are sustainable and have a minimal impact on the environment – our natural world. Our principles of sustainability are incorporated into all our business decisions to ensure a more efficient operation. Te Ara Miraka encapsulates our value of excellence ensuring we exceed expectations everyday.
Te Ara Miraka also recognises excellence through the Miraka supply chain – from the farm to the consumer. It is our way of acknowledging our team and suppliers when excellence is attained or exceeded in the manufacture of our products.
Miraka delivers a superior product. Testament to this is the quality, taste and freshness of our milk supply. Miraka milk comes from 100 local farms within an 85km radius of our processing plant. Our suppliers are all part of the Miraka whanau (family).
"As an employee of Wairarapa Moana Incorporation, a key Miraka supplier, I have watched Miraka develop and grow.
I remember the amazement that was felt when Miraka was 'born' - a local milk factory, owned by local Maori landowners, being supplied by their own people and other local farmers, with promises of land preservation, eco-friendly practises and sustainability for the future - could it be done?
Miraka, for such a young enterprise, is, through innovation, forward thinking and outstanding quality standards, making a big impression for all the right reasons. I am proud to be linked to a company that is achieving this through caring about our beautiful countryside in the past, the present and the future".
