The Freedom Foods Group Ltd (ASX: FNP) share price will be on watch tomorrow after the company provided a bushfires update after the market had closed. 

Freedom Foods confirmed that none of its dairy farms or site operations have been directly affected by the recent Victorian and New South Wales bushfires. 

The company said that all its sites continue to remain fully operational and that the company’s milk supply remains in a “strong position”. 

Further, management said that there were no interruptions to daily deliveries. The company is working closely with its farmers to ensure they are supported and that the supply remains unaffected. 

Australian Fresh Milk Holdings (AFMH) operations have also been unaffected by the bushfires. Freedom Foods owns 10% of AFMH, which is the largest producer of dairy milk in Australia. 

Freedom Foods said that it’s working closely with key retailers by increasing, when required, supply of UHT dairy beverages to help minimise the impact of any fresh milk shortage. 

Finally, the company said it had donated to bushfire affected communities in NSW, Victoria and SA via its partner Foodbank.
