The company is owned by four partners; New Zealand Food Innovation 10 per cent, Dairy Nutra-ceuticals Investment, 20 per cent , Landcorp Farming Limited 35 per cent and Nu-Mega Ingredients 35 per cent – a company wholly owned by Clover Corporation.

In 2014, Clover invested in the first spray dryer built at Waikato.

This will increase capacity to supply the growing New Zealand infant formula market.
