Calls for Fonterra execs to stand down

Calls for Fonterra executives to stand down today after the contamination crisis have so far fallen on deaf ears.

The public wants to know why it took Fonterra so long to inform the Govt of the contamination, and now, Govt officials have stepped in to help with damage control both here at home and internationally.

The extent of the damage to the trade market is not yet known, but NZ's trade reputation is on the line. However, one woman believes a positive message can be found in the crisis.
