INFANT formula manufacturer Nutricia has invested in milk drying operations and blending and packing facilities in New Zealand. The French owned company acquired the spray dryer from Gardians at the same time it purchased the Sutton Group’s blending, packing and can-forming activities. The FGC’s Katherine Rich says the acquisition consolidates the company’s footprint in New Zealand.

“Having such a renowned multinational company purchasing two New Zealand firms to ensure it has a major infant formula local manufacturing facility affirms once again that New Zealand’s dairy industry remains among the best and safest in the world,” says Rich.
