North Taranaki dairy farmer Blue Read has been voted on to Fonterra's board of directors.

The former chairman of the Fonterra Shareholders' Council was one of 11 candidates chasing three seats at the board table.

He was elected behind incumbents chairman-elect John Wilson and Nicola Shadbolt.

With the election last year of Taranaki Regional Council chairman and Parinihi ki Waitoatara and Port Taranaki director David MacLeod, of Hawera, Taranaki now has two directors at the board table of the
dairy giant.
