Our story began in 1995 as a packaging plant for the milk produced on Woodlands Farm, owned by the Gutsche family. Never forgetting our humble beginnings, Woodlands Dairy is now one of the largest manufacturers of UHT milk in South Africa, marketed under our brand FIRST CHOICE®. In addition to our FIRST CHOICE® brand, we also process, produce and package high-quality house brand dairy products for leading retailers such as SPAR and Woolworths.
You will find us along the South African Garden Route, right in the heart of the Eastern Cape dairy region in Humansdorp. Our company has a team of +-1400 people, and we pride ourselves on our innovative thinking, the speedy development of new products and excellent customer service.
Our range includes various cheeses, butter, cream, amasi, custard, flavoured milk and extended shelf life (ESL) fresh milk, UHT Milk, dairy desserts, dessert toppings and ice cream.
