Market trends

The largest supplier of milk and milk products in New Zealand, Fonterra Co-operative, faced immense pressure following the 2008 Chinese melamine debacle, where Sanlu Group, backed by Fonterra poisoned Chinese infants. Recently again in 2013 they faced another blow with a possible botulism scare which had supposedly causing bacterial disruption in their factory lines.
