THE restructure of Rewa Cooperative Dairy Company Limited is complete, the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said yesterday.

A statement from his office said the splitting of the processing and supply functions of the company in accordance with the Dairy Restructure Decree 2010 has been done.

"The two separate entities, the Fiji Dairy Limited (FDL) which is the processor and the Fiji Co-operative Dairy Limited (FCDL), which is the supplier, are now functional," the statement said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also announced the appointment of the FDL board, which include Industry and Trade acting deputy permanent secretary Amita Singh as the executive chairwoman. Permanent secretary for Agriculture, Mason Smith and Public Enterprises permanent secretary Elizabeth Powell are the other two board members.

For the FCDL board, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum confirmed Josefa Serulagilagi to continue as chairman with David Wilson, Viliame Cegumalua, Kashmir Singh, Martin Compain and Michael Harness who are all dairy farmers, as board members.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said that while FCDL was solely owned by the farmers, government would be the principal shareholder for FDL for the time being.
