MPI files charges against Fonterra Limited
13 March 2014

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) filed charging documents on Wednesday 12 March in Wellington District Court against Fonterra Limited, following MPI’s compliance inquiries into last year’s Whey Protein Concentrate incident.

Charging documents have been filed for the following four charges:

• Processing dairy product not in accordance with its Risk Management Programme

• Exporting dairy product that failed to meet relevant animal product standards

• Failing to notify its verifier of significant concerns that dairy product had not been processed in accordance with its Risk Management Programme

• Failing to notify the Director General as soon as possible that exported dairy product was not fit for intended purpose.

MPI cannot make further comment as the matter is before the courts.
