Ashgrove launches low emission milk

Ashgrove, in partnership with environmental technology company Sea Forest, has created what is claimed to be the world’s first commercially available low emission milk, Ashgrove Eco-Milk.

Now available in Tasmanian supermarkets, Ashgrove Eco-Milk delivers the “full cream milk experience”, retaining its taste and quality while reducing methane emissions.

Sea Forest, a global leader in Asparagopsis seaweed cultivation, has developed Seafeed – a “revolutionary” feed product with the potential to reduce methane emissions from livestock by up to 90%.

By incorporating Seafeed into its cows’ diet, Ashgrove says it “significantly lowers” its herd’s methane footprint without compromising milk quality.

Seafeed has been used across commercial farming and feedlots for the past three years and is backed by over 30 peer-reviewed studies.

“Ashgrove is proud to be at the forefront of this global challenge, offering a solution rooted in Tasmanian innovation,” says Ashgrove Managing Director Richard Bennett. “Eco-Milk embodies our unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship and community wellbeing.”

Ashgrove Eco-Milk is Sea Forest’s latest climate-friendly product innovation. Last year, Sea Forest partnered with Grill’d to create the Gamechanger burger, said to be the world’s first sustainable grass-fed beef burger.

Sea Forest is also partnering with Fonterra, Asahi, and MJ Bale to reduce methane emissions across multiple industries and product lines.

“Partnering with Ashgrove to launch the world’s first low emission milk is a remarkable milestone for Sea Forest,” says Sea Forest CEO Sam Elsom. “This pioneering collaboration demonstrates the potential of our methane-mitigating feed product, Seafeed, to revolutionise the dairy industry globally.

“We’re committed to working with partners like Ashgrove to expand this technology and empower consumers worldwide to make sustainable choices while enjoying delicious and nutritious milk.”

Ashgrove Eco-Milk is available at Woolworths, Coles, and IGA across Tasmania.
