The global dairy trading platform owned by Fonterra is to expand further into online trading.
GlobalDairyTrade (GDT), though owned by Fonterra, acts independently as one of the world's leading dairy trading platforms.
As well as its fortnightly auction, the company offer a new way for customers to trade in the 66-billion litre international dairy market.
It is introducing online trading 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Fonterra says the new digital trading channel will meet growing demand for online transactions and will be complimentary to the existing auction.
It said online trading is ideal for customers purchasing smaller volumes who want convenience and availability at a time that suits them.
GDT will also offer a subscription service providing post-auction data to customers.
And the twice monthly auction will now include a new cream group for anhydrous milk fat and butter.
