In the past year, Fonterra committed our support for the newly launched Healthy Kids Industry Pledge. This is an industry-wide initiative, coordinated by the New Zealand Ministry of Health, to identify and contribute solutions that will reduce rates of obesity among children in New Zealand.
We are rolling out the Health Star Rating on our everyday products in New Zealand.

By the end of the 2018 calendar year information on the Health Star Rating will be on our websites for all New Zealand everyday products.
