  • This Week... Canterbury-based milk processor Synlait, regarded by investors as a struggling business when it listed on the NZX in July 2013, has proved itself. Its shares have climbed by $3.50 or 110% in the past year and the share price broke through the $7 mark last week.
  • Dairy expert Keith Woodford has some questions about the success of Fonterra's value-add businesses. He says it is evident Fonterra is rapidly building strength in foodservice but making slow progress in consumer products.
  • Beef+Lamb NZ is looking for a farmer to work with it to showcase best practice and explore technologies. It is the first time such a project has been mooted for a sheep and beef property.
  • And Fonterra's bid for Aust’s embattled Murray Goulburn co-op succeeds, the NZ giant could become the major player in the Aust dairying industry. Fonterra Aust reported a $62m profit before interest and taxes for 2016-17 and said its assets were generating an 11% return on investment.
