Nowadays, it is extremely important to be at the forefront when it comes to sustainability, recyclability, and eco-friendliness. Consumers demand this from manufacturers and Woodlands Dairy and First Choice can’t agree more! First Choice is the first dairy brand in South Africa to use closures made from bio-based material. Through this small change to their packaging, ultimately making a huge impact on the environment. Their cartons are made from more than 80% plant-based raw materials and the whole pack is now 100% recyclable.

First Choice milk is sourced from predominantly pasture-fed cows within the Eastern Cape region. Goodness runs through Woodlands Dairy’s veins. The well-being of the team, the dairy farmers and the communities is essential to them. Woodlands Dairy truly believes that to produce a product that consumers love, the company has to love what it does. Food with goodness at its very origins.
