Norco has taken the unprecedented step of calling on its supporters not to boycott supermarket giant Coles despite calls by Queensland-based dairy farmers for the boycott yesterday.
Australia has lagged behind the rest of the world in waste processing and Southern Cross University is bringing Australia to the table.
People power and a quick response by staff at the Lismore Base Hospital has ensured that the milk contract for local hospitals has been returned to NORCO.
Environmental lawyer, Sue Higginson, who specialises in land use conflict says the Nationals have betrayed their community with the decision of HealthShare NSW to choose foreign owned dairy farmers milk over that of Norco.
In the ongoing battle about whether North Coast hospitals should receive their milk from a local supplier, Health Minister Brad Hazzard has announced that some Norco milk comes from Queensland.
Almost all of the 17 hospitals on the North Coast have severed their contracts with locally based milk producer Norco in favour of a company that sends its profits to Japan.
North coast dairying cooperative Norco will soon be a household name in China, after it confirmed it will begin full-scale shipments of its full range of fresh milk varieties to the country within weeks.
