Miraka continues to achieve
Maori-owned milk-processing company Miraka has won the Emerging Exporter of the Year category at the BNZ Bay of Plenty Exporter of the Year awards.
The company has gone from start-up to exporting more than $200 million of milk powder in less than three years.
Its new UHT milk plant built next to its existing milk powder plant at Mokai near Taupo is set to start soon, with all initial production to be exported to China.
Judges said Miraka was a company nurturing the land and its people.
They said it’s a jewel off the beaten track quietly achieving remarkable results through innovation and local resources.
