ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said Saputo’s undertaking to divest the plant remedied the watchdog’s concerns about competition.

The sale of Murray Goulburn is still subject shareholder and Foreign Investment Review Board Approval.

The company will hold its extraordinary general meeting this Thursday the 5th of April.
