This seems a clear description of labeling foods. I came across it as we
looked at where China's milk goes since the population is traditionally
lactose intolerant. Answer mostly New Zealand and USA.
New Zealand brands
ANCHOR, TIP TOP, ANLENE, PETERS AND BROWNES, ANMUM, MAINLAND, FRESH 'N
FRUITY, SOPROLE and FERNLEAF.

USA not so clear because of deal with 50/50 ownership. As a joint
venture between two of the world’s leading dairy co-operatives, Dairy
Farmers of America (DFA) and Fonterra Co-operative Group, Ltd. who
imports globally, http://www.dairiconcepts.com

The cooperative promises sanitized clean labeling available for
"natural" food products.
And "Supernatural" flavors.

Sure raises question on any processed foods.
