Avoiding listeria

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: The company that makes dairy products under “The Collective” brand, and which copped a nearly $500,000 fine for failing to report positive listeria results, is turning to plant-based products as it makes a comeback.

The Auckland-based company claims to be making its own “plant-based milk” for the new product.

We all know that to make the best tasting yoghurt you need the finest milk, it says on its website.

“And, that’s what we do. We make our own using a blend of oats, coconut and rice (right here in our purpose-built Avondale ‘plant’). We then blend our milk with coconut cream and hundreds of millions of live cultures to create a thick ‘n’ creamy yoghurt, with a taste and texture that’ll leave your jaw on the floor.”

With plant milk yogurt the company won’t have to worry about listeria on the floor!
