Goat milk infant formula company Nuchev has created a milk formula drink for older children and a full-cream goat milk powder for adults as demand for its products continues to ramp up.

The company's new Stage 4 junior goat milk formula drink called Oli6 has been formulated for children aged from three to seven years.

“As people become more aware of the health benefits associated with goat’s milk, there has been growing demand among consumers across a broadening age range,” Nuchev founder and chief executive Ben Dingle said.

“We have an existing loyal customer base who have seen their babies and toddlers thrive on Oli6. Now they have the assurance that their children can continue to enjoy the natural goodness of our goat-based products as they embark on new life stages, such as kinder or school.”

Nuchev has also released a full-cream goat milk powder that has been developed to offer the nutritional features of fresh goat’s milk but in a long-life format. Dingle says the full-cream goat milk powder targets the increasing number of adults switching to goat’s milk.

“We only launched in January and have already seen exceptional demand. It’s really pleasing to have been able to extend our range to a totally new audience,” he said.

Goat milk formula represents around 10 per cent of total Australian formula sales and brings in $100 million in annual turnover, Nuchev says, and its Oli6 brand has seen 500 per cent year-on-year growth across all distribution channels.
