Namibia Dairies (Pty) Ltd was established in 1997 following the merger between Rietfontein Dairies and Bonmilk. The Company has since grown into a leading force in the Namibian dairy industry and employs over 700 people at its main production plant in Windhoek, the !Aimab Superfarm in Mariental and various depot locations across Namibia.
Namibia Dairies is the major supplier of fresh and long-life milk, value-added dairy products and other beverages in Namibia and operates depots in Windhoek, Swakopmund, Otjiwarongo and Oshakati. The company is known for its product innovation and value-adding production processes.
Since July 2009 Namibia Dairies operates one of the most modern dairy farms in the world, which is located in Mariental in the South of Namibia. The !Aimab Superfarm currently houses approximately 1,500 cows in milk, to be increased to 2,000 cows over the next five to six years. !Aimab was built and equipped with tested, state-of-the-art technology from New Zealand, Israel and the United States. The total mixed ration and deep-litter system is based on the controlled feeding of cows in large barns, providing Namibia Dairies with a semi-intensive milk production process.
With its own fodder production, dairy farms and strategic milk-producing partners, Namibia Dairies forms an integrated network of milk supply, processing, value- adding production and the largest national cold-chain distribution network in Namibia.
The company ensures consistent quality for its product range by using only hormone-free milk sourced from approved Namibian milk producers and by enforcing stringent control measures. Namibia Dairies is ISO 9001:2008 certified, emphasizing our compliance with internationally recognized quality management systems.
Our wide range of products – tailor-made to meet the needs of our consumers – include long-life, dairy based products, soft cheeses, yoghurts, fermented traditional dairy products, fruit juices, dairy mixes and carbonated and still mineral water. The company’s leading brands include Rietfontein TM, Sunsation TM, Juicy Fruit TM, and Nammilk TM, the biggest dairy brand in the country.
Namibia Dairies is committed to the successful development of the dairy industry in Namibia and across our region. We seek to create wellness and a sustained quality of life for our customers, consumers, employees and their communities.
