Abstract The approach taken by Fonterra Cooperative Group (Fonterra), New Zealand, to develop and commercialize strains of probiotic bacteria for use in dairy products is discussed. Aspects considered include: Fonterra's strategic decision to develop probiotic strains; strain selection (the in vitro approach, measurement of immune status and function, demonstration of immune enhancement by selected strains in an animal model, demonstration of efficacy against pathogens in disease models, characterization of strains and proof of safety, human dietary intervention/clinical trials, impact of the strains on the microecology of the human gastrointestinal tract); current research activities (genome sequencing, development of genetic tools, targeting the cell surface, investigation of mechanisms of immune enhancement); commercialization of probiotic strains by Fonterra Brands (e.g. in Taiwan and Australia); and third-party commercialization (e.g. by Danisco through its probiotic brand HOWARDUTM in South Africa, South America and Europe).
