Sanlu Group

Sanlu Group was a state-owned Chinese dairy products company in which New Zealand-based dairy cooperative Fonterra held a 43 per cent stake. In 2008, Sanlu was hit by a scandal over milk powder adulteration with melamine, affecting thousands of Chinese babies, with six dying. It was declared bankrupt in 2008 and several managers were sent to prison.

Disgraced dairy scandal officials given top jobs

Activists and parents reacted with anger and concern after reports that several senior officials found negligent in the melamine milk scandal had taken up important new posts even though many victims had yet to fully recover.
