In this article Keith describes what was hoped for with the formation of Fonterra, how it has affected growth in NZ and how competitors have been allowed to develop.
There are some issues and complaints – things are never perfect.
But from My Australian viewpoint – the formation of the 2nd largest co-op (by volume) and 5th largest by turnover has been beneficial.
I will put this article on the dairy plan site as well. It is good to compare ourselves with successful others.
Thank you for this Keith.
