Fonterra has won a trade mark law case against Oamaru company Milligans over its use of the term Dairilife.  The term used by Miligans is similar to Fonterra’s ‘Dairy for Life’ wording. Fonterra took the case to the Intellectual Property Office who ruled that there was a high level of similarity. Fonterra was awarded costs of $4470.
