Anchor Milk in Sri Lanka
04 June 2017
Follow Fonterra farmer owners Ross and Shayney Wallis’s journey to see Anchor in Sri Lanka.
Starting at farms like theirs in Raglan, milk goes to the Te Rapa dairy factory, in the Waikato, to be processed into milk powder before heading off by ship to Sri Lanka.
Generations have grown up on Anchor milk powder and there’s a subtle flavour profile that comes from Te Rapa that Sri Lankans just love. They consume a staggering 2.4 billion glasses of Anchor milk each year.
But it’s not just nutrition that Fonterra exports to Sri Lanka, it’s also good Kiwi know-how. Through Fonterra’s Dairy Development Programme the Co-op mentors and support Sri Lankan farmers so they can get the best milk from their cows, which goes into products Fonterra makes locally such as fresh milk, yoghurt and curd.
