Brownes Dairy Innovates with the First Renewable, Sustainable Milk Cartons
Brownes Dairy was started by Edward Browne as a small dairy farm in what is now Shenton Park. Today Brownes Dairy operates from its main site in Balcatta and owns a second site in Brunswick, collecting over million litres of milk each year.

Brownes Dairy is the first in Australia to utilize Tetra Pak's milk cartons constructed from wood fibers and sugar cane, both of which are eco-friendly and renewable resources. The dairy will be transitioning 25 products to the sustainable packaging, representing approximately 17.8 million milk cartons.
The bio-based material has been tested extensively and the dairy is satisfied that the packaging meets its exacting criteria to ensure quality, freshness and safety. Prior to the introduction of the new packaging, the emphasis and focus of companies around the world has been on recycling and reusing products, without addressing the continued use of plastic and fossil fuels needed in the production.
The use of the new milk cartons is just one way that the dairy has innovated over its 130-year history. In response to a survey conducted by the dairy, milk and milk delivery was reinstituted. The company's website was also transitioned to accept orders 24/7 and customers can choose the delivery date they desire.
The dairy also partnered with The Wiggles for its line of yoghurt pouches created just for children. The yoghurt contains no artificial flavours, colors, preservatives, or added sugar for a tasty treat that provides healthy prebiotics and probiotics. It's also lactose and gluten free.
Customers can now order their favorite flavours of chilled ice coffees, cold brew coffees, and its award-winning Hunt and Brew beverage online 24/7. Individuals can also order orange juice, cream, and yoghurt online for home delivery, along with milk in the new eco-friendly and renewable cartons.
