THE NORTHLAND CO-OPERATIVE DAIRY COMPANY LTD - AT THE CENTRE OF THE LARGEST INDUSTRY IN ITS REGION – HAS BEEN BUILT BY THE INITIATIVE, THE RISK TAKING AND THE DAY-IN-DAY-OUT HARD WORK OF THOUSANDS OF FARMING FAMILIES OVER THE PAST CENTURY, AND BY THE DEVOTION AND INGENUITY OF THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO WORKED IN THE FACTORIES.

IT TOOK FAITH, COURAGE AND OPTIMISM BY FARMING FAMILIES WITH LITTLE CAPITAL TO SET UP DAIRY FARMS ON LAND THAT HAD ONLY RECENTLY BEEN WRESTED FROM SOME OF THE DENSEST RAIN FOREST ANYWHERE, AND THEN TO GAMBLE THEIR FUTURE IN MANY CASES ON THE SETTING UP OF FACTORIES TO SELL THEIR PRODUCTS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD.

MANY SETTLERS, DAUNTED BY THE LONELINESS AND A FUTURE THAT PROMISED MANY YEARS OF UNREMITTING TOIL, STAYED ONLY A SHORT TIME BEFORE FLEEING BACK TO THE TOWNS AND CITIES.

IT IS TO THOSE WHO STAYED THAT THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED AND TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO GAVE THEIR DAILY SUPPORT IN THE FACTORIES AND IN THE COMPANY OFFICES. Please click here to ask a question
