Fonterra in China

Everyday across China people are consuming enough dairy nutrition to fill more than 1.2 million glasses – and Fonterra is helping meet this demand.


With one of the fastest growing dairy appetites in the world, demand for top quality dairy nutrition in China is expected to double in the next 10 years. 

Our team of 400 people work across dairy farming, consumer brands, foodservice and dairy ingredients.

More than 80 ingredients customers across the country, including some of the world’s biggest food companies, rely on our dairy ingredients.

We lead the way in foodservice, providing top quality ingredients to hotels, restaurants, bakeries, caterers, industrial and quick service restaurants. More than half of all pizzas in China are topped with Fonterra cheese. 

Our advanced dairy nutrition footprint is growing; with great-tasting dairy options for babies, mothers and China’s rapidly ageing population.

Producing enough fresh milk to help feed the growing demand for dairy nutrition is a focus and we’re expanding our local farming operations across the country – our goal is to be producing one billion litres of top quality fresh milk every year by 2018.
