Milk for Schools Launch In Auckland

Monday, 21 October 2013 at 11:17am

Auckland had its ‘Milk for Schools’ launch today, with Richie McCaw nominated ‘cowbassador’ for the event which took place at Three Kings Primary School.  More than 1000 schools around New Zealand have taken up the programme of having milk delivered every school day, an initiative by Fonterra.

In a press release out this week, Fonterra CEO said:

“Milk is one of the most nutritious foods there is and we want to do what we can to make sure Kiwi kids grow up drinking it every day,” said Mr Spierings.

“By the end of the rollout we will be delivering milk to more than 1300 schools. That’s a result we are really proud of and this success is thanks to the support our farmers, schools, and communities have given the programme this year.”

It was stated that more than 130 schools in Auckland from all deciles have signed up for Fonterra Milk for Schools and as the largest region in the Fonterra Milk for Schools national rollout, it is expected all schools will be drinking by the end of Term 1 2014.

Applications are now open in Auckland for schools to register their interest or sign up for Fonterra Milk for Schools at https://www.fonterramilkforschools.com/.
