BOB Katter, Federal Member for Kennedy has congratulated Australian dairy business, BEGA for its purchase of Lion’s dairy and drinks business, celebrating the sale as a ‘huge win for Australia’.

“Today is a great day for Australia,” he said.

“The BEGA company is one where families, like the Kelly’s, have been dairy farming for 183 years in Australia. They are one of the many good quality people associated with BEGA.

“It is the duty of every Australian to buy BEGA cheese from now on.

“The North Queensland dairy area is one of the nation’s largest and most condensed. This is extremely good news and we would see this as an opportunity to get a much better deal out of the giant supermarket chains who literally have sold cheap milk over the dead bodies of Australian dairy farmers, their job farmers, contractors and associated businesses.

“So with this sale, they will be getting a bit of their own medicine back.

“We look forward to having discussions with the BEGA people at the earliest convenience.”
