Origin Earth produces Hawke’s Bays own Chocolate Milk

Origin Earth’s Chocolate Milk combines the popular Hawke’s Bay sourced Origin Earth cow’s milk with organic and fair trade chocolate and cocoa powder from Hawke’s Bay chocolatier La Petite Chocolat, then adds a dash of Hawke’s Bay honey and a drop of Heilala vanilla extract and that’s it. Just like our milk it is not homogenised, just pasteurised, and there are no thickeners, emulsifiers, milk powders, additives or stabilisers.

Chocolate and flavoured milks have long been Kiwi favourites and it was in response to requests from customers wanting a product made using Origin Earth milk that got Origin Earth director, Joanie Williams, into the testing room and trying out different combinations/recipes.

Right from the beginning she knew she wanted to create a product in line with Origin Earth’s core values and one that parents would be happy to feed their children. The resulting product not only tastes great and is loved by young and old alike, but with just 5.24g fat and 5.74g sugar per 100mL is also low in both these components.

Having been thoroughly taste tested, mainly by shoppers at the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market, the Origin Earth Chocolate Milk is now ready to join other Origin Earth products and to become a favourite in Hawke’s Bay and beyond.

Established in 2010, by Joanie and Richard Williams, Origin Earth is a Hawke’s Bay owned and operated dairy company which currently produces fresh cow and sheep milk, pot set yoghurt and a range of cheeses.

All Origin Earth products come from animals which are sustainably farmed on biologically managed soils and have complete traceability.

Origin Earth Chocolate Milk is currently available from The Origin Earth Shop at 393 Te Mata Rd, Havelock North, and each Sunday from the Origin Earth stall at the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market at the A&P Showgrounds, Kenilworth Rd, Hastings. However, expect to start seeing it soon wherever you usually buy your Origin Earth milk.
