Milk New Zealand Dairy company resumed the work of supply chain and sales operation functions in most regions of China gradually.

“We are making every effort to seize the production of New Zealand’s high-protein milk, giving priority to the supply of the Chinese market.”
He also expresses an optimistic outlook regarding the long-term consumption of China market.
“We are working to strengthen farm management to address risk due to the impact of china’s reduced demand in the first quarter, but that does not affect our long-term expectation for the Chinese market, and now we are in New Zealand and notice that China is fully back in full employment to meet strong consumers’ demand.”
Mark had attended the 2nd China International Import Expo (CIIE) in 2019, he also brings the best wishes to the 3rd CIIE.
“According to the Dairy industry data, milk prices are on the rise, it will around the highest range in five years, but we will maintain support for the Chinese market. Looking forward to the 3rd CIIE.” Said Mark Pulman.
Theland Farm Group operation manager Ryan Orchard also expressed his support for the China market during a daily operation meeting with his team.
“We hope our milk can help in the battle with China against the novel Coronavirus, milk is great for your immunity and high in protein, and we’re very proud to bring pure milk to Chinese consumers. Over the last couple of years, we’ve sent representatives to the CIIE in China and had remarkable success. We’re very excited to bring more representatives again this year to the third CIIE.”
