Fonterra Confirms None of its Branded Consumer Products Affected by Quality Issue

Fonterra confirmed Saturday that no Fonterra-branded consumer products are affected by the quality issue announced by the Co-operative on 3 August 2013.
 
Fonterra assured consumers in global markets including Australia, Asia, China, Latin America, New Zealand and the Middle East that none of its range of branded consumer products contains the affected whey protein concentrate (WPC80).
 
Full list of Fonterra’s consumer brands
 
In addition to branded consumer products, Fonterra markets a range of commercial ingredients under its NZMP label. These ingredients are sold to other food companies that use them to manufacture their own consumer products.
 
The three specific batches of WPC80 produced at a single New Zealand manufacturing site, which were identified by Fonterra in its initial announcement, are the only NZMP ingredients affected by this quality issue.
 
These batches were sold to eight of Fonterra’s customers – with some receiving it as base product and others receiving finished product manufactured by Fonterra using the affected WPC80 as an ingredient. Of these customers, three are food companies, two are beverage companies and three are companies that manufacture animal stock feed.
 
Fonterra is continuing to communicate with and provide support directly to these eight customers. At this stage, no product recalls have been announced. Any product recalls that may be necessary in the coming days will be announced and initiated by the respective customers, in conjunction with local regulators.
 
Fonterra will continue to provide regular updates and further information as it becomes available.
