Notice of judicial review of 2017/18 Base milk price calculation review report

The Dairy Industry Restructuring Act (DIRA) sets out the regulations that govern the domestic dairy sector and Fonterra in particular.

At the end of each dairy season, we undertake a review of Fonterra's base milk price calculation. We publicly report on the extent to which Fonterra’s milk price setting processes and calculations provide incentives for Fonterra to operate efficiently and are consistent with contestability in the market for purchasing farmers' milk.

Open Country Dairy Limited brought judicial review proceedings against certain conclusions in our 2017/18 Base Milk Price Calculation review report.
