The a2 Milk Company

As the a2 Milk® pioneers, we are determined to help you enjoy a better life.

Back in 2000, The a2 Milk Company was founded in New Zealand by Dr Corran McLachlan after an amazing discovery; While studying at Cambridge University, Corran learned that proteins in milk affect people differently.

He learned that ordinary cows produce milk with different beta-casein proteins, called A1 and A2. He then discovered there was a safe and simple way to identify cows who produced milk that was naturally A1 protein free. From there The a2 Milk Company was born.

Published research suggests that a2 Milk® may help avoid tummy discomfort in some people. That’s because a2 Milk® contains only the A2 protein and no A1.

Today, The a2 Milk Company’s mission remains the same: to pioneer the scientific understanding of the A2 protein type so more people can enjoy the nutritional goodness that only comes from real cows’ milk.
