An Australian company says camels are the next big thing in alternative milk, as it looks for further investment in a new processing facility.
Perth-based commercial camel milk producer, Good Earth Dairy, has been awarded an A$4.4 million (NZ$4.8m) grant from the Western Australian government to construct the facility.
The funding brings the company a step closer to the A$20 million project, which will be Australia’s first dairy facility dedicated to producing fresh and powdered camel milk products.
Set for completion in 2026, the facility will increase Good Earth Dairy’s production capacity to 21.9 million litres a year, expand its distribution to international markets and allow it to enter the infant formula market.
