Myanmar President Welcomed by Fonterra
Today, on his first visit to New Zealand, Myanmar President Thein Sein met with the Fonterra Co-operative Group’s Chairman John Wilson and CEO Theo Spierings at their headquarters in Auckland.
Fonterra, is opening an office later this year in Myanmar, and the meeting aimed to further strengthen the company’s relationship with Myanmar where it has been supplying high quality dairy nutrition for almost 20 years.
Chairman John Wilson said they were pleased to welcome President Sien to New Zealand and provide him with a deeper understanding of their business, and the New Zealand dairy industry.
“We have a number of strong partnerships in place with Myanmar and we’re looking at how we can work together to grow our presence in the country to make high quality dairy more available and accessible to the country’s population,” he said.
Tomorrow President Sien will get an even closer look at Fonterra’s dairying operations when he visits a 500 cow farm in South Auckland.
