Fonterra, the world’s fourth-biggest dairy company, started the construction of its third powder plant (drier) at its existing Pahiatua site in New Zealand in December 2013.  The Pahiatua plant, located on Pahiatua Mangahao Road in Mangamutu, New Zealand, produces milk powder, butter, cheese, casein, and other dairy products. It processes 1.4 million litres of milk daily and has an annual processing capacity of 55,000t of milk powder.  The new drier will be the first in New Zealand to use the self-condensate reusing method. It will be based on advanced energy-efficient processing technology.
