Fonterra’s new acting COO announced

Fonterra’s Director of Global Supply Chain is set to become the dairy co-operative’s new acting Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Anna Palairet will replace the current COO, Fraser Whineray, who is leaving next month.

She has extensive experience across operations, customer service and safety and has spent more than a decade in senior leadership role, Fonterra said in a statement.

Palairet, who is the current Chair of global freight company, Kotahi GP Limited, will remain in the acting role until a permanent appointment is made.

Last year, Fonterra and Nestlé have agreed on the sale of their Dairy Partners Americas (DPA) Brazil joint venture to French dairy company, Lactalis, for €124.8 million.
