The Everyday Beverages Ingredient Portfolio is an essential tool encompassing NZMP’s core range of dairy ingredients for everyday beverage applications.

Created as an easy-to-use tool, customers can quickly and effectively compare ingredients suitable for their specific needs. The tool carefully organises NZMP’s beverage range with simplicity in mind, so that customers can focus more on capturing market share with full confidence they have the right combination of ingredients for their products.


NZMP is Fonterra’s business-to-business global dairy ingredients and solutions brand. Used by some of the world’s most famous food, beverage, and nutrition brands, our ingredients are sold in over 100 countries. NZMP is backed by Fonterra’s grass-fed dairying heritage, passion for innovation, and leading processing and quality standards.

NZMP’s range of beverage ingredients have been designed for easy recombination. Beverage applications can be kept either chilled or shelf-stable for different periods by using pasteurisation, ESL (extended shelf-life), UHT or sterilised-type heat treatments.

The portfolio tool explains which specific ingredients are designed to support different types of heat treatments such as:

  • Liquid milks, powders and concentrates to provide a complete milk substitute, or milk solids that support formulation
  • Proteins which provide high-quality nutrition and/or functional benefits
  • Fats which provide stability to support formulation and boost delicious dairy flavour

The tool also details how different ingredients contribute to different functional and nutritional attributes during product formulation.

Split up by application, it allows customers to easily flick through chapters and ingredients to confidently compare and choose the right ingredients for their needs.

The NZMP Dairy Beverages Application, Technical and Marketing Category teams have applied their expertise to curate an easy to navigate portfolio that is tailored for dairy beverage customers. We ensured there was enough portfolio breadth yet distinguishable differences that would help customers determine the best ingredient solutions for their brands.

The right ingredients for outstanding beverages

As the dairy solutions partner for some of the world’s biggest beverage brands, NZMP provides customers with quality ingredients that meet consumer needs.

NZMP's Everyday Beverages Portfolio helps customers find the right ingredients for their brand and products.

The ingredients detailed in the tool offer superior stability, consistent performance and an enhanced milky flavour. The portfolio shows customers how composition, taste, texture, nutrition and manufacturing performance can be optimised by recombining two or more ingredients.

NZMP’s Everyday Beverages Portfolio covers these range of applications:

  • White milks
  • Flavoured milks and dairy beverages
  • Enriched milks
  • Coffee and tea
  • Acidic dairy beverages

The tool also highlights a group of ‘Unique Advantage’ ingredients. These ingredients have been specifically designed and tested to provide additional properties, claims, functionalities, and reliability in particular beverage applications. These advantages may be for taste, texture, nutrition, claims, or simply manufacturing performance.

It’s the go-to document our sales and technical teams can use with their customers to help find the right ingredient.
