Miraka, New Zealand’s first Maori-owned milk company, has signed an MOU with Malaysian company Storiiu, a food distribution business, to supply their flagship consumer food, Whai Ora. 

It is the first international consumer partnership for Miraka.

Whai Ora is a range of all-natural food smoothies with a blend of fruit, vegetables, milk, honey and oats. 

Kingi Smiler, chairman of Miraka, said the company had been working on the launch for the past three years.


Following the Whai Ora promotion in Malaysia, the brand will be introduced in Singapore and the Philippines, both target consumer markets for Miraka. 

Miraka said the ingredients are sourced from farmers who share the Miraka values of caring and acting sustainably for the environment.  Miraka’s milk supply comes from 100 local farms within an 85km radius of the factory.
