OPINION: In recent years Fonterra has been ridiculed by commentators about the fact that it has been upstaged by a young dairy company, a2 Milk.

Milking It

Just last August, a2 was living the dream, reporting a bumper after-tax profit of $385.6 million on revenues of $1.73 billion.

Its share price, which at one stage had dropped to 10c, hit the giddy heights of $21.50, valuing the company at $15.9 billion, above NZ’s biggest co-op.

But the tables have turned. Thanks to three successive profit downgrades, a2’s fortunes have tumbled.

In recent weeks, its share price was $9.50, meaning the company has more than halved in value in little over six months.

It’s currently worth about $7 billion.

Dairy products and, in particular, grass-fed products are performing strongly post-covid in overseas markets.
