New Zealand working with Sri Lanka for dairy future

New Zealand working with Sri Lanka for dairy future

Following the uncertainty around the Fonterra scare, Federated Farmers is delighted to see the Government working with Sri Lanka in a bid to create greater confidence in our dairy trade.

“The Dairy Sector Cooperation Agreement will ensure healthy and sustainable growth both domestically and internationally. It is a trade off of our world-class expertise for market assurance,“ says Willy Leferink, Federated Farmers Dairy Chairperson.

“If we can help these guys in setting up their dairy supply chain with a happy customer at the bottom, it will be hugely beneficial for both countries, as we can fill the shortfalls and keep building the consumer base.

“We cannot expect to provide the building global population for ever and ever, with long term dairy demand increasing two percent compounding. That is a New Zealand dairy industry every year worldwide, so we need to keep building the supply chain and the consumer base.

“Whilst Sri Lanka can rely on Fonterra to ensure they are building their product off a decent platform domestically, Fonterra can ensure the quality of the product meets consumer’s expectations. This will provide a basis of trust in high quality products, which will gain even more consumers across the globe,”

“It is better to be on the field than in the reserves,” concluded Mr Leferink.
