A farmer from Tasmania has won a competition to come up with a name for the joint venture between Bonlac Foods Limited and the New Zealand Dairy Board.

The joint venture, which will create a dairy product marketing company, will now be called Bonland Dairies.

Barry Saunders, a now retired former Bonlac Foods supplier from Stowport, was one of three entrants to suggest the new name for the new company. He has won a weekend in Queenstown, New Zealand, for himself and his wife.
