With a strong tea drinking culture and thirst for milky tea, Bangladeshis are increasingly using powdered milk over condensed milk to whiten their ‘cuppa’ - and it turns out that they really like the pure taste of ‘Aussie’ full cream milk powder.
One of the most popular milk powders used in Bangladesh comes from the milk off dairy farms in Victoria’s South West, where it is turned into instant full cream milk powder at Fonterra’s Cobden site.
Lisa and Willy McKay run a dairy farm with over 200 dairy cows in Irrewillipe and send their milk to the Cobden plant 30 kilometres away.
“Willy and I met at a high profile dairy cattle sale in the USA a few years back. He is the fourth generation in his family to follow down a dairy farming path and my family have deep dairying ties too. We both have a passion for cows and we’re working together to build a future in dairy farming,” says Lisa.
