Fonterra has resumed its consumer operations in Sri Lanka after the company was accused of failing to comply with a temporary ban on selling and advertising products in the country.

The company was hit with a two week ban after food safety regulators claimed they had detected the agricultural chemical DCD in milk powder.

Following allegations the company flouted the ban, the New Zealand dairy giant suspended operations last Friday (23 August). The Enjoining Order was overturned on the same day.

Following a “thorough assessment” by management, Fonterra has now reversed this decision.

“I am now confident that our people are safe and the business is ready to resume operations and continue selling high quality dairy nutrition to Sri Lankan people,” CEO Theo Spierings said.
