The first container of milk powder at New Zealand Dairies Limited's Studholme dairy factory was loaded for export yesterday.

"The final audit was today and we are hoping to physically be able to export later this week."

He was confident the export clearance would be achieved and the container of milk powder would be on a ship in Lyttelton on Friday.

A tour of the factory was also held yesterday afternoon for members of the Waimate District Council.
