The a2 Milk Co. has expanded into grassfed milk in the U.S. with two new products that recently debuted at major natural food retailers including full nationwide distribution at Whole Foods and Sprouts. 

The new a2 Milk Grassfed Whole Milk and a2 Milk Grassfed 2% Reduced Fat Milk are Certified Regenerative by AGW, Non-GMO Project Verified, and Validus Certified for animal welfare and are among the first grassfed products in the A2 protein category.

“As consumer interest in the a2 Milk brand continues to grow, adding a grassfed version is a natural progression that meets rising demand in this premium segment,” said Blake Waltrip, CEO of The a2 Milk Co. USA. “Combining the digestive benefits that some people experience with a2 Milk with the growing popularity of grassfed milk provides a compelling new dairy option for health-conscious consumers that will also help us continue to build our brand.”

Like all a2 Milk products, the company’s new grassfed milk comes from cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein rather than the combination of A1 and A2 proteins contained in most dairy products. Published research suggests a2 Milk that naturally contains the A2 protein may help avoid stomach discomfort in some people, stated a2.

The a2 Milk Grassfed products come from cows that are on pasture every day, all year – with the nutrition and care they deserve. a2 Milk Grassfed Milk is Certified Regenerative by AGW.  AGW Certified Regenerative farms are required to minimize disruption to the farm’s ecosystem while using agricultural production to regenerate key environmental factors, such as soil health, water, biodiversity and air quality.

Like other products in the a2 Milk range, a2 Milk Grassfed products are Verified Validus Animal Welfare Certified and Real Milk Certified. In addition to Whole Foods Market and Sprouts, it is available at other natural food retailers and on with Whole Foods delivery/pickup.
