Synlait Milk joins board of leading industry body

Synlait Milk joins board of leading industry body

Canterbury dairy product manufacturer Synlait Milk has joined the Board of the Infant Nutrition Council (INC), allowing it to take a greater leadership role in industry issues.

INC, which represents 95% of the infant formula industry in New Zealand and Australia by volume, has welcomed Synlait to the new role and says the move will benefit both consumers and the industry.

“Synlait Milk is a fantastic New Zealand company, we are delighted to have them join our Board,” INC Chief Executive Jan Carey said.

“The Infant Nutrition Council is firmly committed to ensuring the safety and integrity of New Zealand’s infant formula industry.

“Having world-leading dairy manufacturers like Synlait represented on the Board ensures we can continue to work together to meet our own expectations so that parents and the public can have faith in the infant formula manufactured, marketed or exported by any of our member companies.”

Michael Stein, Synlait Milk’s General Manager Quality and Technical Services will represent Synlait on the INC Board.

“We are pleased to be appointed to the Board and we look forward to taking an active leadership role on industry issues to ensure New Zealand’s reputation for producing high quality and safe nutritional products, like infant formula, continues to be developed,” said Mr Stein.

INC plays a key role in ensuring compliance and safety in the industry. The Board works together to ensure members abide by a strict code of conduct that sets expectations for the support of breastfeeding as first choice, responsible marketing of infant formula, food safety and regulations, and ethical member conduct. Members also have access to specialised resources and global technical expertise of other long-term industry players.
