Dairy Milks Chance for Global Expansion

A South West dairy company is looking to revive plans for a global expansion which could treble its production of milk. It comes after the company won a gong last week, with its Farm Fresh Milk named the most popular dairy product in the country in the prestigious Australian Grand Dairy Awards. It is believed to be the the first WA product to do so in the competition’s 23-year history. In 2014, the couple entered into a partnership with Hancock Prospecting’s Gina Rinehart, which enabled them to produce their premium product in larger volumes.
