Fonterra chief executive Theo Spierings will talk to the company's Taranaki shareholders tonight about the company's proposed share trading scheme.
Trading Among Farmers will be put to the vote at meetings next Monday, although shareholders can also vote online and by post.
New Fonterra director David MacLeod, of Hawera, said yesterday he understood voting by Taranaki shareholders, so far, was among the lowest in the country.
"So that indicates to me that people still have concerns and are still considering which way to vote."
Mr Spierings' visit to Taranaki presented an opportunity to address shareholders that Mr MacLeod said was too good to miss.
Mr MacLeod was able to arrange tonight's meeting late on Friday and apologised for the short notice. He hoped up to 200 shareholders would attend the meeting at Hawera's TSB Hub.
After Mr Spierings and director John Monaghan address the meeting, there would be ample time for shareholders to ask questions.
Mr Monaghan would talk about the benefits TAF.
"He will also help everyone clearly understand what will be in front of Fonterra if TAF doesn't go ahead," Mr MacLeod said.
The meeting would ensure shareholders were as informed as possible before they voted, he said.
