This is according to Fonterra Chief Executive Theo Spierings who stated that the A$46 million investment took the company into the hugely strategic Australian dairy market. 

At a cost of A$4.95 for each one of the 9.3 million shares, the move will build on relationships already formed by Fonterra in the past. 

Bega's brand is currently licensed by Fonterra, which owns a substantial supply contract for Bega cheese. 

Judith Swales, Managing Director, Fonterra Australia said, “We have a longstanding partnership with Bega, and we look forward to continuing to build on that relationship into the future.”
