Canada-based Saputo has made around $C5bn ($A5.29bn) worth of acquisitions since its IPO in 1997, according to CEO Lino Saputo jr. He remains upbeat about the long-term outlook for the global dairy products industry, despite a sharp fall in milk prices in the last 18 months. Saputo is keen for more acquisitions in Australia and New Zealand, after entering the local market via its $A450m deal to acquire Warrnambool Cheese & Butter.
