Forecast Payout And Advance Rate Increase Welcomed

The Fonterra Shareholders’ Council has welcomed the co-operative’s announcement of an increase in both the forecast payout and the advance payout rate for milk.

Shareholders’ Council chairman John Monaghan said: “Shareholders and the Council are always pleased to hear good news.
