Threat against New Zealand Dairy Industry

Posted 11/03/2015

New Zealand authorities have informed a number of companies, including Danone Nutricia, about a blackmail threat against the New Zealand dairy industry. The police, who have launched a criminal investigation, have assessed any risk to the public as low.

Danone Nutricia New Zealand has not received any threats, and there is no evidence of any safety issue with regard to its products.

As a precaution, and to support the New Zealand Government and Police in their efforts, the company has put additional security measures in place at all our New Zealand sites, including supplementary product testing.

Danone Nutricia has full confidence in the integrity of its production processes and its supply chain.


Australia’s Department of Agriculture has been advised that New Zealand products exported to Australia are safe, and extensive testing has shown no evidence of contamination. Read the full statement at
