Dear valued client,
Following the latest announcement from the Government we are currently putting into place steps to move towards COVID-19 Level 4.
As you, as our clients, are essential services then our service to you also becomes essential.

To access consumable products please contact the office for assistance and they will direct you in how to collect these safely.

• They will then specify a time to meet you at the office for pick up. 
• When visiting the office we ask that you remain outside and our team member will bring the products out to you.
• Please also continue to employ good hygiene practices, maintain social distances and avoid handshakes to ensure the risk of any transmission is avoided.
• We will be able to supply products from existing stock. If a non-stocked product is needed urgently, we will do what we can to source this from our suppliers.
• We may be able to provide delivery to you through our essential breakdown team however, this is at their discretion and should only be for urgent health and safety reasons
• All email inboxes will continue to be monitored by our staff should you have any questions.
We have suppliers who understand this is an essential industry and servicing this industry is just as important. Trucks will keep trucking and cows will keep producing milk

Together we can!

What we are doing in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees, suppliers is always our utmost priority. We want to let you know what we are doing in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Good hygiene

We have to make sure we are doing as much as we can, hence we have briefed our staff on the importance of cleaning and sanitizing more often, and wipes.

We are also following the Ministry of Health’s guidelines around hand-washing and cleaning, and have reinforced this with all our teams.

Supporting our team

As a business which comes into contact with people every day, we have a responsibility to help keep people safe. Right across our business, we are following the government’s requirements around self-isolation for any of our team members who are returning to New Zealand from overseas travel, as well as any of our supplier partners who are coming into our stores.  We are supporting our team if they have been impacted by self-isolation requirements.

Our team is here to help

If you are self-isolating, please notify us so we can put in the necessary steps and let our team know to take extra precautions when coming on-site or delivering goods to your property.

Our team is doing all we can to serve you during these busy and challenging times.

We thank you for your continued patience and support.

Get an AquaCHILL unit retrofitted to ensure compliance

Milk cooling regulation and compliance isn’t a new thing, but anybody out there in the industry will know that there is really starting to be a crackdown on non-compliance. Dairy Plants are given just 21 days to meet compliance criteria, with different businesses having different standards in temperature after two hours.

Milk needs to meet that magical temperature within two hours of entering the vat and with a retrofitted AquaCHILL system, GEA guarantees that milk will enter the vat at below 6’c, getting you most of the way there to meeting regulation.

We know 21 days to compliance is hard, but we imagine the industry is only going to get tougher as regulation becomes more and more enforced, that’s why we think it’s a good idea you get onto it now and factor it into your budget before you have that short timeframe to meet compliance.

With a hot summer and warm March, an AquaCHILL system can future proof your business as temperatures continue to rise. An AquaCHILL unit can also be a good system to consider if you’re thinking of switching suppliers, as it’s really easy to retrofit with minimal labour and you’ll be meeting the milk cooling standards set by the supplier.

Talk to the team at Nind Dairy Services today about how an AquaCHILL unit can ensure you meet compliance and what solutions are right for your setup. Call 0800 50 22 50.

Do you need a Nind Dairy Services Plumbing Warrant of Fitness?

Are you aware that Nind Dairy Services offer a huge range of plumbing services?

Taking a proactive stance on maintenance can save you time and money. That is why we highly recommend you get someone from the Nind Dairy Services team to do a ‘Warrant of Fitness’ check on your farm, especially if you’re looking to change onsite staff soon. This ensures everything is fully functional, and not causing any unwanted damage that you may not be aware of. The Nind Dairy Services team can make recommendations and advice to ensure your farm business stays operational.

Nobody likes a breakdown, whether it’s in the water supply or sewerage system, as it can take time away from working on the farm, for you and your staff. That’s why it’s best to get someone in the industry to check, clean, and repair your plumbing equipment so that it’s fully functional and you know whether it’s in a good condition or coming up for replacement. That way, you can get ahead of your gear, and know when to replace things before a breakdown that stops work, and costs you.

Now is a good time of year to get your farm and workers houses checked before a change of tenants.

Nobody likes to have new tenants move in, to then get a call that there’s leaking taps, or no running water, or clogged spouting and drains that could be causing unwanted damage to your property. Tasks that are often overlooked (and could really do with an expert eye) are things like checking your water pumps, septic tanks, and the wastewater systems. We recommend getting one of the Nind Dairy Services team to do a full check of your farm equipment and worker’s houses each year, this ensures your gear is clean and reliable. If anything does need repairing or you want to upgrade the kitchen, the Nind Dairy Services team are able to make those repairs for you, to your timeframe and budget, and often before those new tenants move in; saving your bottom line.
