Dairy nutritionist Andrew Henderson launched NEMi milk after consultation with nutritionists and scientists focusing on the health benefits of milk and dairy products and found that Selenium, although an essential mineral, is deficient in most human diets across Europe.
NEMi milk is naturally enriched – they don’t add anything to their milk – it is all achieved though the cow’s diets, hence their slogan: ‘Good for you. Good for our Cows.”
Trace amounts of Selenium are needed for cellular function in humans and animals and is an ingredient in many multi-vitamins and other dietary supplements; the World Health Organisation lists Selenium as one of its ‘Dietary recommendations / Nutritional requirements’.
NEMi has already started to show its support for R.A.B.I on social media and on its website and has signed-up to take part in our November fundraiser – Welly Week.
As well as the health benefits of its products, NEMi is keen to show support to the farming industry and the farmers who currently supply NEMi, located in Cheshire, Shropshire and Lancashire receive 30ppl for their produce compared to 20ppl-30ppl paid by most dairy processors and supermarkets.
NEMi Brand Manager Ashleigh Henderson, daughter of founder, Andrew, said: “We are delighted to work with and support R.A.B.I. At the centre of NEMi is the ethos to always pay farmers a fair and sustainable milk price (because quite frankly they deserve it) and maintain an ethical supply chain throughout. Thus, there is a great synergy between R.A.B.I and our company’s goals, in that we are both working towards a brighter and more positive future for our invaluable farming families.”
NEMi is a fast growing business, but retains its spirit as a family-run outfit and is based in Audlem, Cheshire. They currently supply milk to local schools, care homes, shops, cafes and bakeries in Cheshire, Shropshire and Lancashire and also support the annual International Cheese Awards at Nantwich.
Corporate Development Manager for R.A.B.I, Suzy Deeley, said: “R.A.B.I is very excited to be working with NEMi – its ethical standpoint on milk production mirrors our own emphasis on the welfare of farmers and farmworkers. We’re looking forward to building our relationship and, especially with Welly Week just around the corner, having some fun too!”
