Fonterra and Beingmate Australian Joint Venture Formalised

The joint venture sees Beingmate take a 51 per cent stake in Australia's premier paediatric powder plant at Darnum, with Fonterra retaining a 49 per cent stake, and control of operations at the plant.

Subject to final regulatory approvals, the first product destined for Beingmate's Chinese customers is expected to roll off the Darnum line in the second half of 2016.

The Darnum joint is a key component of Fonterra's partnership with Beingmate to create a fully integrated global supply chain from the farm gate direct to China consumers, using Fonterra's milk pools and manufacturing sites in New Zealand, Australia and Europe
