Fonterra invests $4.4m in Malaysian dairy operations

Southeast Asian nation an increasingly vital conduit to Asia and the Muslim world

Jose Miguel Porraz Lando, managing director of Fonterra Brands Malaysia, regards the domestic market there as an important incubator for dairy exports to the wider world.

KUALA LUMPUR -- Fonterra Co-operative Group, the world's largest dairy export company, has recently invested 20 million ringgit ($4.4 million) to improve operating layouts at two Malaysian plants.

The New Zealand group's move will boost blending capacity at the Susumas plant -- its first in Malaysia, built in 1992 -- and reduce dependence on third parties. The plant can produce and pack an annual 30,000 tons of milk powder for brands including Anlene, Anchor, Anmum and Fernleaf, all market leaders in Malaysia.
