Fonterra today celebrated the official opening of its new state-of-the-art milk powder dryer at its Lichfield site – the Co-operative’s most efficient milk powder dryer to date.
MP for Taupo, Hon. Louise Upston and South Waikato Mayor Jenny Shattock joined local farmers, iwi and community members to officially open the new plant.
Fonterra Chairman John Wilson said today’s opening is the continuation of our strong legacy in dairy production in New Zealand’s dairy heartland.
“While Lichfield is one of Fonterra’s younger sites, over its 21 year history it has become one of the most significant for our Co-operative in our ability to meet growing global demand for dairy.”
