Harvey Fresh and Fonterra to take up Challenge dairy supply
Milk producers Harvey Fresh and New Zealand dairy giant Fonterra have moved to take up extra milk, after farmers supplying the Challenge Dairy Co-operative were told they should find new purchasers for their product.
Harvey Fresh moved quickly to offer contracts to a number of Challenge suppliers, and Fonterra has now advised it will offer contracts to all remaining dairy farmers that have yet to sign new contracts with Harvey Fresh or National Foods.
Agriculture and Food Minister Terry Redman welcomed the support shown by Fonterra and Harvey Fresh for the Western Australian dairy industry in the wake of recent uncertainty.
“Many dairy farmers have been faced with the prospect of not being able to find a home for their milk, so the actions of Fonterra and Harvey Fresh will come as welcome relief,” Mr Redman said.
“I have appreciated the open and supportive relationship between my office and Fonterra throughout this crisis, and I am very grateful for the valuable role the company has played in helping WA dairy farmers endure these current challenges,” he said.
