OPINION: It's been a bad week for Fonterra.
At a time when global consumers are clamouring for healthy grass-fed milk products (e.g. butter), and willing to pay a premium, Greenpeace is continuing its senseless campaign.
This time, the lobby group wants the Government to phase out synthetic nitrogen fertiliser, maliciously calling it one of the key drivers of industrial dairying, over two years.
Used wisely, this is a fundamental tool used to grow food for the world.Do they really want to disrupt the dairy industry and send the country’s economy crashing in the process?
