Westland Milk Products is the trading name of Westland Co-operative Dairy Company Limited, an independent co-operative dairy company. It is owned by over 340 farmer shareholders, who supply milk to the factory for processing. Their major processing factory is located on the eastern edge in the town of Hokitika on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, with their main warehouse and milk concentration plant near the small town of Rolleston outside Christchurch
After the deregulation of the New Zealand dairy industry in 2001, nearly all of the dairy co-operatives in New Zealand amalgamated to become Fonterra. Westland Milk Products' shareholders voted to remain an independent co-operative, as did the much smaller Tatua Cooperative Dairy Company.
