King’s Creamery was born following the desire to create a pot-set yoghurt that was truly premium. In June 2019, the Chatrath family decided to take on a new venture after twenty years in the food and hospitality industry.
“Our goal was to create the most pure and natural dairy products on the market,” said Amit Chatrath.
“We looked at the whole manufacturing process and assessed where we could do better.”
The team started with the milk, the source of all dairy goodness. Based in the Waikato, the business had access to some of the best milk in the whole of New Zealand.
Nestled in a valley in view of Taupiri, Maunga and the Hakarimata Ranges, and close to the Waikato River is Tironui Farm. This is where all of the milk is sourced from for its range of products, a single farm where the cows are grass-fed. The milk is collected fresh every day and processed within King’s Creamery’s state-of-the-art, brand new, purpose-built factory within an hour.
The brand currently manufacturers Natural Yoghurt and Fresh Paneer. “We wanted to perfect our craft and products until we were fully satisfied and happy with them.”
What sets the brand apart from others within the category is that the product is all natural, meaning that all of its products are free from any nasties such as preservatives, additives and stabilisers. This is all thanks to the freshness and quality of its milk, so nothing else needs to be added.
“As a family that has been operating in the food industry for over 20 years, we understand the importance of quality products and are therefore able to provide our customers with an extremely unique product.”
Looking ahead, the brand has some great products in the R&D pipeline. “We plan on releasing a low-fat variant of our Natural Yoghurt during December. In 2021, we have a range of new products that we can’t wait to share with the market.”
Once customers try King’s Creamery products, they will never settle for less.
