Fonterra has reopened its milk powder plant in Malaysia following a NZ$7 million (US$4,8 million) investment in improving manufacturing efficiencies. The plant will blend and pack about 30 000 metric tonnes of milk powder products a year. Fonterra stated the plant will enable it to meet the growing demand for dairy products across 13 countries in South East Asia. Managing director of Fonterra Brands Malaysia and Singapore, Jose Miguel Porraz Lando, said: “Demand for dairy nutrition is growing fast across the region, driven by the rising middle class and huge populations.
