St Helen’s Farm, the UK’s leading goats’ milk producer, announced its first foray into the world of celebrity endorsement with the appearance of Suzanne Shaw and her son Corey on its cartons throughout February.
The 1L cartons of milk, stocked in Tesco and Sainsbury’s, have featured ‘Carton Case Studies’ on pack for over ten years and the dairy is inundated on a monthly basis by customers sharing their stories after making the switch to goats’ milk and realising significant health benefits.
Suzanne’s story echoed the experience of many others, with the symptoms suffered as a direct result of drinking cows’ milk causing over ten years of serious digestion and other associated health problems. After trying numerous alternatives the TV favourite had resigned herself to drinking black coffee and cutting out her staple breakfast cereal in the absence of something that could fill the void without a sour after-taste.
Yet, an introduction to Yorkshire based St Helen’s Farm and its goats’ milk products at the end of last year made such a significant difference to her life, Suzanne was compelled to write to the dairy farm to share her story and sincere appreciation after her morning coffee regime could be resumed without any sacrifices.
Suzanne said: “For over ten years I’ve had a problem digesting cows’ milk and have been desperate to find an alternative that still tasted delicious. It’s a welcome relief to finally enjoy milk in my much-needed morning coffee once more!”
Mike Hind, Sales & Marketing Manager of St Helen’s Farm said: “We are delighted to have Suzanne feature on the cartons with such a strong story and it’s great to know that the milk has made such a difference to her life on a daily basis.
“We have a long standing tradition of using our packs to tell inspirational stories and we are sure that Suzanne’s profile will continue to help to spread the word about the benefits of goats’ milk.”
Mild-tasting goats’ milk can be a good alternative for people who can’t drink cows’ milk – which is one of the most common causes of intolerance (especially amongst young children) in the UK.
Many people who can’t drink cows’ milk can drink goats’ milk – and claim their intolerance symptoms are reduced or disappear altogether. These symptoms often include: eczema; asthma; bloatedness; constipation; digestive discomfort and catarrh.
Suzanne added: “My goats’ milk even started disappearing from the fridge – it turns out everyone in the house had been supping it! It does mean that shopping is a little easier though.”
