Fonterra report record export as Asian demand increases

Fonterra has claimed a strong Asian demand has helped generate record dairy export.

The Kiwi company said it exported 229,000 tonnes of dairy products in March.

Fonterra’s Managing Director of Trade and Operations Gary Romano said: “The real driver for the export record is the ongoing strong demand from China, South East Asia and the Middle East.

“In these regions, we are seeing the emergence of the middleclass with more discretionary income and a desire for more nutritious foods. Dairy fits the bill.”
