Last August, Fonterra and Beingmate announced they intended to form a global partnership to help meet China’s growing demand for infant formula.
 
“The partnership will create a fully integrated global supply chain from the farm gate direct to China’s consumers, using Fonterra’s milk pools and manufacturing sites in New Zealand, Australia and Europe,” Fonterra added in the statement.
