“Starbucks was looking for a partner in the Asia Pacific region to develop this unique product. After almost two years of development it is very exciting to be able to begin production. An extensive amount of work has gone into ensuring that the Frappuccino® pre-mix is an exact match for the popular drink consumed by millions around the world, ” said Kevin Bowler, General Manager Beverages, New Zealand Dairy Foods.
