7:17 am on 8 October 2014

Fonterra is hoping for some progress today in lifting the temporary halt on the sale of some of its milk powder in Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lankan Ministry of Health blocked the sale of three batches of Anchor full cream milk powder after three customer complaints.

Fonterra said its own testing had found no food safety or quality issues, but it was waiting to hear the outcome of further testing ordered by the ministry.
