It’s Indonesian palm oil, this time!

Fonterra,New Zealand’s Dairy Goliath, must be dissolved—after the directors are prosecuted for their part in killing dozens of Chinese babies [the exact number still unknown] and sickening about one half of a million others

By now most everyone in the world knows Fonterra doesn’t play by the rules—and they don’t like to be caught red handed.

Fonterra seeks $17m lawsuit against newspaper

Tuesday Mar 17, 2009

Fonterra is seeking a billion rupee (about $17 million) gagging writ over a Sri Lankan newspaper allegation that its milk products have been adulterated with palm oil or other vegetable oil.

Fonterra Brands Lanka has sought a court order to stop daily newspaper Heladiwa Irida Sangrahaya and its editor Dharma Sri Kariyawasam from re-publishing the claim.

It is asking for a billion rupees as damages if the claim is again published.

A Colombo District Court judge Sampath Wijeratne is considering the New Zealand dairy giant’s case against newspaper owner, Sayuri Newspapers.

In New Zealand, a Fonterra spokesman told NZPA the company expected to be able to comment after seeking details from its overseas staff.

Fonterra’s lawyer, Romesh de Silva, told the court the company imported and distributed milkpowder for brands including Anchor, Red Cow and Raththi, Anmum, Anlene, and Anchor Shape.

On March 15, the newspaper printed an article and editorial alleging the milk products did not contain full cream, but instead added palm oil and vegetable oil.

Fonterra complained it was a false and baseless allegation, and that the newspaper was planning to launch a poster campaign and continue to publish similar articles.

Fonterra last year found itself a key player in the tainted-milk products scandal in China, after six babies died and many others became ill.

Order on defamatory campaign today

By Susitha R. Fernando

The Colombo District Court yesterday fixed for today the order to prevent a defamatory campaign being carried out against well known milk products importer Fonterra Brands.

Colombo District Judge, Sampath Wijeratne made the order following a civil application filed by Fonterra Brands Lanka (Private) Limited citing  Sayuri Newspapers (Pvt) Limited and the Heladiwa Irida Sangrahaya editor Dharma Sri Kariyawasam.

Supporting the application Romesh de Silva PC with Sugath Caldera and Eraj de Silva instructed by Sudath Perera Associates told court that the company was involved in importing and distributing milk power products including Anchor, Red Cow and Raththi and the defendant newspaper which claimed to be a national newspaper in its March 15, 2009 publication  had carried an article and an editorial with contents that defamed the company. The publication had alleged that all milk products imported and available in the market in Sri Lanka did not contain full cream but instead added palm oil and vegetable oil. The plaintiff complained that it was a false and baseless allegation with regard to its milk products and would cause an irreparable loss as they were used by children and expectant mothers.

The counsel further said the defendants were planning to launch a poster campaign and continue to publish similar articles in the said newspaper.

The company said it had obtained Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLS) certificate and the alleged article was wrongful and damaged the reputation of its enterprise.

Fonterra Brands Lanka (Private) Limited asked for an enjoining order preventing the defendants from printing and publishing any article that would be defamatory of the company and demanded Rs. 1000 million as damages.
