Our Story

At Haven we know every baby and every parenting journey is unique. Something one family finds easy, another might find more challenging - and that’s completely okay. What we do have in common is that we all want to give our babies the very best possible start in life.

Haven believes a little extra care can go a long way in those important early stages. Our mission is to provide not only a high quality New Zealand-made A2 protein Cow’s milk formula range and Goat’s milk formula range that is gentle on little tummies, but also to be a sanctuary for parents and caregivers to come together to have honest conversations about parenting.

Our belief is that no one knows your child like you do, so you and you alone are best placed to make decisions about their livelihood. Haven aims to provide an open platform where parents can explore choices and information to find your own formula for raising your child.

A2 Explained

A2 protein cow’s milk, comes from cows that have A2/A2 DNA and which produce milk with only the A2 beta-casein protein type and not A1. The origins of A2 protein producing dairy cows, dates back to the very beginnings of dairy farming.

While New Zealand milk is famous globally for being produced by grass-fed farming systems, with sustainable practices and stringent quality controls, our supplier farms also follow strict product safety measures and rigorous testing standards to ensure A2 protein milk purity. Only a select few New Zealand farms meet this high standard of compliance.

Goat’s milk is naturally A2 protein milk and is a gentle alternative to cow’s milk. Containing natural A2 proteins, goat’s milk can be a wholesome alternative for little ones who are sensitive to cow’s milk. Haven goat’s milk is sourced from select farms in the North Island of New Zealand.

This makes A2 a unique milk product as it is derived from a limited source by way of select New Zealand farms who have specialised in this type of production.

Haven partners with some of the leading producers in the industry to ensure we can stand by the high quality of our product with confidence.

This includes tracing our milk to the select farms and farmers who take great pride in the care of their land, animals and the purity of their milk.‍
