A blend of Lewis Road’s Premium Whole Milk and Whittaker’s 5 Roll Refined Creamy Milk Chocolate – Lewis Road Creamery Fresh Chocolate Milk has been available in the North Island only since October last year due to the location and capacity of its plant in Mangatawhiri, in the Waikato.
It quickly became a sell-out success and since then increasing capacity to meet the unprecedented demand and achieve national distribution has been the company’s number one priority.
“We want to thank Mainlanders for their patience as we’ve been expanding our production capacity and working through the logistics of distributing our Chocolate Milk throughout the length and breadth of the country,” says Lewis Road Creamery founder Peter Cullinane.
“We receive daily requests from dozens of eager South Islanders wanting to know when our Chocolate Milk will be coming, so we are pleased to be able to confirm a South Island launch date.
“We are equally pleased to be sharing the news of two brand new flavours of milk that will be released nationwide at the same time. We will be revealing what these new flavours are when they launch in early September.”
Lewis Road Creamery Fresh Chocolate Milk and two all-new flavoured milks will be available from selected supermarkets and specialty food stores throughout the South Island from September 2, in two recyclable bottle sizes – priced from 750ml, RRP $6.49 and 300ml RRP $3.69.
