Fonterra’s Stirling cheese plant in Otago (NZ) will be coal free and using wood biomass to fire the site by August 2022.
Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell says its recently announced lift in the 2020/21 forecast farmgate milk price range is a result of consistent strong demand for New Zealand dairy.
Fonterra releases details of how it will pay farmers for producing sustainable, high quality milk as part of The Co-operative Difference framework.
The new collaboration is based around DSM’s feed additive product Bovaer, which effectively and consistently reduces methane emissions from cows by over 30% in non-pasture-based farming systems.
Fonterra and Nestlé are teaming up with DairyNZ to expand a promising plantain trial to help improve waterways and reduce on-farm greenhouse gas emissions.
