Merge Co Must Go Ahead: DFNZ

Merge Co Must Go Ahead: Dfnz

31 March 2000


"Merge Co must go ahead. The merger is still achievable and farmers expect their directors to have the fortitude to make it happen," said Dairy Farmers of New Zealand Vice Chairman Paddy Briscoe.

"Dairy farmers have a very strong resolve that they want their industry to remain united," commented Mr Briscoe.

"There is a will among farmers for it to happen, and the directors of both Kiwi Co-op Dairies and New Zealand Dairy Group must get the message that they have a clear mandate to make it happen."

Mr Briscoe said that, "It is clear that the process of negotiation was flawed. We must now get it back on track and the best way forward is to use a facilitator."

Mr Briscoe said that DFNZ wholeheartedly supported calls for an expert facilitator to assist with the merger process.

DFNZ would be more than willing to assist with finding a suitably qualified and experienced facilitator.

"It is time for fresh thinking and renewed focus. An independent and expert facilitator will give the merger process the fillip it now needs."
