    Other multi-national companies will not take this lightly. If they also decide to pull out their products can our local industry handle the vacuum?

    So, that means even "Kiri" can become "Kekiri" any time

    I believe an enjoining order is given 'ex-parte' i.e without the other party (Fontera in this case) being present and is for a limited time . Fontera can move the courts to have the order revoked which I am sure they will do

    This will only backfire on the Government.Unless our folls are ready to drink Chinese artificial milk powder

    Yes yes melamine was added by Fontera's Chinese subsidiary, do you know that?

    There is some truth in Fonterra case. The CEO of Fonterra New Zealand has resigned accepting responsibility.

    What about Maliban Milk imported from Australia. They too should be banned from market as they too were found to be contaminated with DCD.

    Paul Friday, 16 August 2013 11:21 AM

    resignation had nothing to do with DCD contamination, he resigned over the botulism contamination issue. Get your facts straight before commenting.

    There is China to step into the vacuum ….

    this Nursing Union is crazy! New Zealand is a fairly good place to buy dairy products. If they stop sending, who will take over that place probably eat Asian giants. Do we have technology to check all the poison? Hope every one can remember couple of years ago China sent some baby milk with plastc coloring agent.....

    It's just another Rajapaksha vs maharaja group fight match. Nothing more nothing less. Why not ban Glaxo baby powder, and other baby formula? via DM iPad app

    Chinese monopoly on diary products has just begun via DM Android App

    I say again, garry romano resignation had nothing to with DCD or botulism concerns, everyone has ups and down in their career, it was just a resignation form one of the plant managers in NZ, as his resignation took place during this issue in sri lanka, everyone tries to relate this to current situation. srilanka would not survive in this global village without multinational companies, if government want to uplift local milk industry, they should try to do this in an ethical systematic manner, not making false accusations to such a wide spread and quality company, this is simply outrageous!

    only if our govt could be like the ceo of fonterra and resign this plc would be a much better place to live dont you think? via DM Android App

    KD Saturday, 17 August 2013 12:33 AM

    Other multinational companies will pull their products to support Fonterra without considering the loss of income. Yeah right.
