About
The a2 Milk Company

Back in 2000, The a2 Milk Company was founded in New Zealand by Dr. Corran McLachlan after an amazing discovery; While studying at Cambridge University, Corran learned that proteins in milk affect people differently.

He learned that ordinary cows produce milk with different beta-casein proteins type, called A1 and A2. He then discovered there was a safe and simple way to identify cows who produced milk that was naturally A1 protein free. From there The a2 Milk Company was born.

Research over the years demonstrates that many people who have digestive discomfort when drinking ordinary cows’ milk find a2 Milk™ easier on digestion. That’s because a2 Milk™ contains only the A2 protein and no A1.

Today, The a2 Milk Company mission remains the same: to pioneer the scientific understanding of the A2 protein type so more people can enjoy the nutritional goodness that only comes from real and natural milk.
