Fonterra response to news of Craig Norgate's passing

A message from Fonterra Chairman John Wilson on the passing of former Fonterra CEO Craig Norgate:

“It’s deeply upsetting to hear of Craig’s passing and our thoughts go out to his wife Jane, and children Dylan, Alexandria and Jordan.

Craig played a key role in the formation of Fonterra and made a significant contribution to the Co-operative as our first CEO, helping bring together key players in the New Zealand dairy industry with the strategic vision he was known for.  He remained a close and trusted friend and mentor to many of our people.

Craig was a proud and passionate New Zealander who made a huge contribution to this country. He will be greatly missed.”
