New Zealand Dairy Association

New Zealand Dairy Association (Wesley Spragg, general manager), Wellesley Street, Auckland. This business was established in 1886 by Mr. Spragg in conjunction with Messrs Bycroft and Co., by whom it was successfully conducted till 1894, when Mr. J. C. Lovell and Mr. Spragg acquired the business. The farmers throughout the country supply the milk, and the butter—about 1100 tons annually—is sent to London to the Lovell and Christmas Company, probably the largest butter importers in England. The premises in Wellesley Street are elaborately fitted up, and exceedingly clean, and well conducted. Under the offices there is a cool cellar of large dimensions. The principal factories are at Pukekohe and Ngaruawahia, with forty-two contributing creameries. Over one hundred hands are employed. The brands are the well-known “New Zealand Dairy Association” and “Anchor.”
