Lion Refutes Speculation About Selling Dairy Processing Business

Lion Pty Ltd. is not planning sell its business. Stuart Irvine, Chief Executive of Lion refuted the speculation that the company could sell its dairy processing business. The official suggested that Lion's recent investment in Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory was an indication of the company's ‘commitment’ to dairy. It was speculated that Lion has been looking to sell its dairy arm. The Australian reported, citing an unnamed source as saying that the company approached Fonterra Australia Pty. Ltd. about a potential deal in recent months but the later was uninterested. Stuart Irvine said, “I think the stake that you've seen in WCB is a demonstration of our commitment towards our future plans.” He added, “We already have a relationship with them in everyday cheese, and that means that we've taken a seat at the table so that the relations we currently have are looked after during any potential transfer of ownership.”
