Our shareholders recognised that they could add further value beyond the farm gate by creating a vertically integrated business that would add more value to their milk. The first step was to establish a sound business around the manufacture and sale of commodity products and then over time, move into more value added products
As part of the growth strategy Miraka expanded its current processing plant in July 2013 to include an Ultra Heat Treatment (UHT) milk production plant with the capacity to produce 60 million litres of UHT milk producing 240 million packs of UHT packs a year.
The next phase of our strategy reflects our innovation in consumer packs of nutritional powder products.
