Flexible Shareholding

I'M A SUPPLYING SHAREHOLDER WHO CURRENTLY SUPPLIES MILK TO FONTERRA

I have a 'Share-Up Over Time' contract

Under Flexible Shareholding, Fonterra is partially waiving Share-Up Over Time (SUOT) terms to your benefit, to reduce your minimum holding of 33% of your milk supply in line with the new structure. Your maximum holding under Flexible Shareholding is 4x your milk supply.

However, if you entered a new SUOT contract for the 2022/23 season, this automatically ends when Flexible Shareholding comes into effect – meaning you would then have up to six seasons to share up to your minimum holding of 33% of your milk supply. You won’t be bound to supply us for the full six seasons if you reach your minimum holding early. 

Where can I find more information?
