I'm quite sure that the rest of the world does not pay the NZ price for items exported to us. We are subsidizing the export market so that Fontera can keep up it's big profit margins
Fonterra exports 95% of its products, I'm pretty sure we are not subsidizing it, what would be nice to see is the break down of what super markets pay wholesale, Also at least one of the political parties should raise removing GST from basic food items (milk, bread, vegetables etc)
Fonterra would simply say "If we can sell the milk to (insert foreign destination) for $Y, why should we sell it to you Kiwis for $Y - 20%?"
In response, I would simply say to Fonterra "The rest of the world (insert foreign destination) doesn't permit you to dump on their environment, screw up their rivers, yet you dump on ours, and steadfastly refuse to pay anything for doing so. You have entered into a social contract with the country, now it's time to start stumping up on your side."
