Commerce Commission


Under section 150H of the Dairy Industry Restructuring Act 2001 (as amended in July 2012) the Commission is required to review Fonterra’s Milk Price Manual for each season and make a report on the extent to which it is consistent with the purpose set out in section 150A of the Act. To assist the Commission’s review Fonterra needs to provide the Milk Price Manual for the current season, together with recommendations of the Milk Price Panel in relation to the Setting of the Base Milk Price, notification of required changes, certification of why it meets the purpose, and supporting reasons before 1 August each year. The Commission is required to make its final report by 15 December each year.

Under Section 150O of the Dairy Industry Restructuring Act 2001 (as amended July 2012) the Commission must review Fonterra's calculation of the base milk price for each season and report on the extent to which it is consistent with the purpose set out in section 150A of the Act. To assist the Commission's review Fonterra must provide (by 1 July in each year) the assumptions adopted and the inputs and processes used by Fonterra in calculating the base milk price for the preceding season. They must also provide certification (including reasons) that the assumptions inputs and processes are consistent with the purpose set out in section 150A of the Act. The Commission is required to make its final report by 15 September each year.
