Many American companies choose to outsource talent from developing countries, but this for-profit milk bank stands out. Ambrosia Milk pays women in Cambodia for their excess breast milk, which is then made available for sale in the United States.
This is a new option for mothers who want to breastfeed their babies but are unable to or cannot produce enough. Many milk banks are under-supplied or not policed. Based in Utah, the startup redistributes excess milk to parents in need states-side for a more affordable price.
Ambrosia Labs provides an alternative source of income outside of factory work for better pay. Before sale the milk is pasteurized and adheres to standards set by the World Health Organization.
