The story of Coega Dairy
The story of Coega Dairy

The concept for Coega Dairy was initiated in 2010 by 13 local Eastern Cape dairy farmers; all with the same aim.


Protecting the scenic Eastern Cape countryside and building a better future is important to us, which is why we strive to ensure that our products are as environmentally-friendly as possible.
