Surprlus storage solutions

Following in the footsteps of the American government, Fonterra has laid plans to begin stockpiling surplus milk powder.

Fonterra’s managing director of global trade, Kelvin Wickham, last week pointed the finger at the US Department of Agriculture for buying up more than 100,000 tonnes of surplus milk powder from US producers and stockpiling it in limestone caves near Kansas City.

What Wickham did not mention was that Fonterra was already well advanced in its plans to begin doing the same thing here, but not in limestone caves.

Instead Fonterra will be stockpiling excess milk powder in modern, high stud warehouses across NZ.
