Fonterra Chairman Visits New $126m UHT Milk Processing Site

Fonterra Chairman Visits New $126m UHT Milk Processing Site at Waitoa


Plant Manager Karl Haystead, Fonterra Chairman John Wilson and Programme Manager Sarah Davenport with some of the Anchor UHT cream and milk products that will be produced at the Co-operative’s new UHT milk processing site at Waitoa.
Fonterra Chairman John Wilson visited Fonterra’s new $126 million UHT milk processing site at Waitoa on the weekend. The site is in its final stages of testing before commissioning Anchor UHT milk and cream products at the end of this month.

Mr Wilson said he was impressed with how quickly it had taken the site to get to this stage with construction completed in 12 months.

“It was great to get the chance to visit and meet the team who have brought our Waitoa site to life. There is a real sense of pride from the team on the ground.

“It’s exciting to think that 24,000 packs per hour will soon be being produced for customers in China and throughout Asia.”

Fonterra’s UHT milk processing site at Waitoa will allow the Co-operative to process more than 100 million litres of milk per year by August when all five of its processing lines will be operating.
