Moo Moo Farms set to offer US-standard fresh milk
Holstein-Friesian cows are a rare sight in Cambodia, but now many can be found mooing at Moo Moo Farms in Arey Ksat commune just 15-minute ferry ride across the river from Arey Ksat ferry port.
Fresh milk from 300 cows passes through a cooling machine to lower the temperature to four degrees Celsius. It then goes through pasteurizing and sterilization machines in several stages before being bottled under the Moo Moo brand.
Located in Lvea Em district’s Arey Ksat village in Kandal province, the farm sometimes opened for educational tours where private schools bring groups of elementary students to learn about the process of producing milk.
According to the 29-year-old American farm’s owner Kenny Matthews, who speaks fluent Khmer, Moo Moo’s milk delivers a high standard in term of taste, quality and hygiene, comply with American standards.
He further shares that his intention is to help Cambodian people have access to fresh milk, a local product, and enjoy the same quality as his homeland as he loves Cambodia and this may allow him help Khmer people in long term.
Moo Moo Farms has expanded from 15 to 300 cows, all of them imported from New Zealand. Matthews revealed that in early February next year, his farm would add another 1,000 cows to its herd. Currently it is available in 70 outlets in Phnom Penh and can be ordered via phone, Facebook and home delivery.
Early next year it will be sold in Siem Reap and eventually in all provinces in the Kingdom.
