“With our distribution network of more than 20,000 outlets in seven continents, we are regularly asked if we can supply dairy products to our buyers and wholesalers,” said Kollaras & Co Director Michael Kollaras. “Hart Dairy is an excellent fit for us to fulfill this need and we are excited to work with CEO Tim Connell and the Hart Dairy team on this joint venture. We are also encouraged by the significant opportunities offered in the Asian region as we begin to fulfill substantial orders through Dairy Fresh New Zealand.”
“Kollaras & Co is a world-class organization and partnering with them to offer our premium dairy products in the Asian market was an easy decision for us,” said Hart Dairy Chief Executive Officer Tim Connell. “Working with the Kollaras & Co team is a natural step for us to expand our ‘Grass 365’ dairy product offerings into Asia and the recent high demand for our products gives us confidence in the long-term sustainable growth of Dairy Fresh New Zealand.”
