New Fonterra Trade Role For Mike Moore

New Fonterra Trade Role For Mike Moore

The Rt. Hon. Mike Moore has accepted the role of Senior Counsellor on trade and global strategy for Fonterra Co-operative Group, Chief Executive Craig Norgate announced today.

“Mike Moore is well known internationally as an articulate proponent of the advantages of a free and fair global trading system,” Mr Norgate said. “As the world’s single largest exporter of dairy products, responsible for a third of international dairy trade across borders that system is of critical importance to Fonterra.”

Mr Norgate said Fonterra stood to benefit greatly from the strategic advice offered by Mr Moore, drawing on his vast experience, expertise and contacts with leading figures in the international trade community.

Fonterra currently exports to more than 140 different countries and accounts for 31% of the internationally traded dairy market.

The appointment is part-time for a period of two years and Mr Moore will operate from his base in Geneva.

Mike Moore was Director General of the World Trade Organisation from September 1999 until August 2002. He is a former Prime Minister of New Zealand and, in a long and distinguished career in politics, served in a wide range of Cabinet portfolios including Minister of Overseas Trade and Tourism, Minister of External Relations and Trade, Deputy Minister of Finance and Minister of Foreign Affairs among others.

Mr Moore will work closely with members of the Fonterra Leadership Team and International Trade Strategy staff.
