In this front-page advertisement from the London newspaper, the Daily Mail, Glaxo claims to ‘build bonnie babies’. Joseph Nathan and Company was the first firm to make dried milk in New Zealand in 1904 in their factory at Bunnythorpe near Palmerston North. The firm also started the manufacture of casein, a dairy protein, in New Zealand.
