Packaging giant Orora has secured a new supply agreement with leading dairy group, Fonterra.

Under the new agreement Orora will supply multi-walled dairy bags to the Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited for its milk powder operations.

Orora expects to install and commission the new machine in the second half of 2016.

When complete, the new production line will be one of the leading dairy bag manufacturing facilities in the world with the latest bag-making technology combined with the highest food safety standards.
