With the latest purchase, Fonterra has raised its interest in Prolesur to 99.9%, the world’s largest dairy exporter said.
Prolesur sells most of its production to Soprole, a branded dairy company in Chile, which is 99.9% owned by Fonterra.
Kelvin Wickham, Fonterra’s chief executive officer for Africa, the Middle East, Europe, North Asia and the Americas (AMENA), said the move would help Fonterra to integrate the Prolesur and Soprole businesses.
Soprole, a market leader in Chile, is Fonterra’s oldest offshore investment.
The streamlining comes at a time when Fonterra has halted an ambitious and ill-fated overseas expansion and announced plans to phase out overseas milk production centers, after it reported a record annual loss in September.

AUSTRALIA – The government of Australia has awarded funds to two local dairy companies, Purearth and Australian Consolidated Milk, in an effort to boost local milk production.
