Mirrabooka Protein has been blending premium quality grass fed Australian whey protein since 2011. How do we know so much about it? We live and work in the region the protein comes from. We visit the farms and we listen to the farmers. We walk in the pastures and we feel the grass.
We use single origin whey protein which comes from Australian dairy cows milk from farms predominantly in southwest Victoria. The climate is this region provides ample sunlight and rainfall for sustainable dairy farming, by maximising the days per year the cows are on pasture and removing the need for chemical fertilisers to make the grass grow.
Dairy cows need chlorophyll, found in green grass blades, to produce nutrient rich milk.
The cows rotate through several fields in a process honed over multiple generations of Australian dairy farmers. The cows typically rotate through three fields, each at different stages of regrowth. When the grass blades have been eaten down to about 1/3 of their height, the cows are rotated to the next field. This leaves enough strength in the grass to ensure regrowth. Too long in one field, the grass is eaten too low and does not have the strength to regrow (without chemical fertilisers). Too many cows in the herd, and the grass in the field is eaten too quickly before the grass in the next field is ready to move into. (Factory farming is an extreme example of this.)
Mirrabooka Protein is tested for heavy metals.
Mirrabooka Protein endeavours to have fully recyclable packaging by 2025, and to avoid single use plastics where possible. We must provide food grade packaging that is both functional and secure for our customers.
There are four levels of packaging waste: reusable, recyclable, recyclable soft plastics and landfill.
We recommend our customers follow these best practices when disposing of packaging:
Mirrabooka Protein is packaged in reusable, recyclable and BPA Free food grade jars and caps. We do not use single use soft plastic pouches.
Our transparent jars and caps are completely reusable, pantry-friendly and an excellent, attractive way to store pantry items such as oats, cereals, pasta, flour etc.
Remove the label, wash and clean your empty jar and cap before reusing.
Reuse and recycle.
We use removable polyethelene labels. These labels are designed to be peeled off the jar or tub without tearing or leaving any residue.
The labels can be placed in household recycling bins.
Our scoops are both reusable and recycleable.
Our bulk packaged protein contains three parts- outer bag, inner bag and label.
Outer bags- recyclable paper.
Inner bags- recyclable soft plastic (food grade).
We recycle all cardboard, paper and soft plastic bags from the bulk packaging of our raw ingredient supplies.
We exchange or recycle pallets with our suppliers.
We welcome suggestions for suitable, premium quality, food grade, sustainable packaging from packaging and label suppliers.
