Early Record Milk Flows

NEW ZEALAND - A good autumn and a reasonable winter throughout the country is resulting in record milk flows for Fonterra’s processing sites across the country.

Fonterra Managing Director Trade and Operations Gary Romano said it is too early in the season to make changes to total milk forecasts, however there is no doubt there is a wave of milk coming in earlier than forecasted.

“The extra milk volumes are putting pressure on the milk collection, manufacturing, and the supply chain, but weather conditions over the remainder of the season could see this change again."

“We know some of our farmers are experiencing disruptions and we are doing everything we can to minimise the impact on their operations and have a number of contingencies in place to manage the milk flow.”

Milk collection is on average up more than 13 per cent on a daily basis throughout the country compared to last year.
