Sale of Tip Top

The Dominion Post - - Opinion -

For years the re­ceived wis­dom about our milk prod­ucts has been that we need to pro­duce more re­fined prod­ucts rather than just sell­ing bulk in­gre­di­ents.

Now I hear that one of the few ex­am­ples where farm­ers (Fon­terra) ac­tu­ally own the whole sup­ply chain from cow to con­sumer (Tip Top) is be­ing sold.

Surely this should be the last as­set to be sold – we put in max­i­mum value and re­coup all the profit. And the farm­ers pay the peo­ple who make these de­ci­sions mil­lions? Some­thing is se­ri­ously wrong.
