Lewis Road Creamery, New Zealand’s premier sweetheart dairy brand, is Southern Pastures’ consumer arm. It has been associated with Southern Pastures since 2017 and under full ownership from 2020.
Lewis Road Creamery burst into New Zealand public consciousness in 2014 with the launch of its chocolate milk with its long-term partner Whitaker’s Chocolate – to say that this was wildly popular would be an understatement. It created mayhem in supermarkets, snaking queues, need for security guards in some stores and even a black-market due to its unforeseen demand.
The Lewis Road Creamery Chocolate milk is regarded by many discerning consumers as the best in the world – there was even one dedicated fan that airfreighted it for her wedding in Switzerland.
