Sweden's milk war is now being played out on television.
FONTERRA IS offering winter milk contracts in Waikato to keep its new $120m UHT plant in year-round production. The plant at Waitoa has eight lines and can produce 28 packets of UHT milk and cream per second; it needs 100m L of milk every year.
A STEADY stream of containers loaded with UHT milk are leaving the Miraka dairy factory near Taupo headed for the China market.
Miraka is contracted by the Chinese dairy giant Shanghai Pengxin to produce the UHT milk in 250ml branded packs for Chinese consumers.
WE ALL know China makes some crap. But we also know China makes quality items – Apple i-Phones, supertankers, Red Bands and Swandris, to name a few. The trick is knowing which is which.
Pineapple-flavoured milk and cream are two of the products being churned out by Fonterra's new $120 million UHT milk processing site at Waitoa in the Waikato.
FEEDING American dried distillers grains is unlikely to cause problems with China, say agribusiness specialists.
SYNLAIT MILK is now a registered manufacturer of retail-ready infant formula for export to China, following approval from the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People's Republic of China (CNCA).
TARATAHI AGRICULTURAL Training Centre has signed a memorandum of understanding with the China Rural Technology Development Centre (CRTD).
Synlait Milk has received MPI approval of its risk management programme at its dry blending and consumer packaging plant.
