Demand for milk in China is expected to triple over the next 10 years and this latest farm will increase Fonterra's production there to 90m litres a year.

The new farm will be developed on 40.7ha in Yutian County of Tangshan City, and the herd of 3,200 milking cows will produce around 28m litres a year. It will employ 100 people, and construction is expected to finish by the end of next year.
