NORCO has lost a ten­der with North­ern NSW Health Lo­cal Health District to sup­ply 300,000 litres of milk to lo­cal hos­pi­tals. Min­is­ter for Health Brad Haz­zard has been asked to in­ter­vene. Norco, which em­ploys more than 300 peo­ple in the re­gion and sources milk from 214 dairy farm­ers in north­ern NSW and Queens­land, was un­der­cut on the ten­der it has been re­vealed. Al­ter­na­tive mar­kets will now have to be found for the ex­cess milk.

Norco chair Greg McNa­mara.
