This time the environment lobby group is using a US report to discredit the dairy co-op.
According to Greenpeace, a new report by the US-based Institute of Agriculture and Trade Policy named Fonterra as one of 13 global dairy companies causing the climate crisis to worsen by expanding into the global markets and pursuing business strategies that caused farmer debt to rise.
But hang on Greenpeace...Fonterra’s new strategy is all about selling overseas assets and using its NZ milk pool to provide the world with healthy and quality products.
And Fonterra farmers are capable of making their own decisions on personal finance. Sorry Greenpeace, you got it wrong!
