Company Overview

NIG Nutritionals Limited, part of the New Image Group of companies since 1984, has been at the forefront of dairy based nutrition for over 30 years to deliver our promise of safe and high quality nutritional products.

NIG Nutritionals is proud of its pioneering spirit and New Zealand heritage, placing it as a leading innovator, manufacturer, export and recipient of multiple export, business and science and technology awards.

Using innovative technologies and ingredients backed by science, we aim to enhance the health and wellbeing of people throughout the world.


In 1984, after the loss of his father, mother and brother to cancer, respected New Zealander and entrepreneur Graeme Clegg founded NIG Nutritionals. He pioneered dairy-based health products and NIG Nutritionals grew to leverage the power of bovine colostrum and other natural ingredients. Graeme’s mission remains – to bring health and wellbeing to people around the world.

Over the past 34 years, NIG Nutritionals has changed greatly. The purchase of a number of processing facilities in the Auckland region of New Zealand has enabled us to expand our product range from ten to more than 100. A series of business partnerships and acquisitions has seen NIG Nutritionals progress to the forefront of innovation and technology in the nutritional products sector.
