Chew Chong

Before becoming involved in the dairy industry, entrepreneur Chew Chong ran this general store in New Plymouth. Local dairy farmers often bartered butter for store goods, but because of poor processing, much of it spoiled when exported. To improve butter processing, Chew Chong opened one of New Zealand’s first dairy factories, in Taranaki in 1887.
