may consider additional partnerships with Chinese dairy
companies in the future, but not those involved in the infant
formula market, Chief Executive Theo Spierings told Reuters on
Spierings was speaking after Fonterra announced it was
buying a $524 million stake in China's Hangzhou Beingmate Group
"In the field of infant nutrition no, but when you look at
our UHT play and our plays into food service, I'm not saying no
at this point in time. Partnerships are the key to China in the
world of food and dairy," he said.
"When you talk about getting everyday nutrition and UHT milk
into every household, I can think of a few good partners."
