OPINION: Promoters of 'healthy' plant-based 'milk' take note! Regular consumption of cow milk is not associated with increased levels of cholesterol, according to new research.
The Moo Chews website listed more than 100 stockists nationally for the milk bites, which are marketed as a health treat for children. However, two distributors, who recently learned Moo Chews were made at Gloriavale, have now refused to handle the product - with one offering all its retailers a full refund as an incentive to get them to withdraw Moo Chews from sale.
Following enquiries from local media about manufacturing of the milk bites, an email from the Moo Chews NZ website said Gloriavale's contract would be suspended until the company was satisfied with employment practices at the factory.
