Fonterra’s factories damaged in quake

Fonterra has established no-one at any of its sites in Chile was injured by the earthquake but hasn’t managed to contact all of the company’s staff who were at home when it struck.

In a newsletter to suppliers, company chair Sir Henry Van der Heyden said that there’s been varying levels of damage to its plants.

The one nearest to Concepción is quite severely damaged but the others should be back in action in a few days.

The company is working with farmers to help manage milk supplies until normal processing resumes.
