The Treasurer Scott Morrison has approved the $280 million sale of the Van Diemen’s Land Company to Chinese company Moon Lake Investments on the condition that it complies with Australian tax law.

The Foreign Investment Review Board approved the sale which would guarantee job retention and additional jobs.

The sale of Tasmania’s biggest dairy was previously agreed with TasFoods consortium but the New Plymouth District Council (NPDC), its New Zealand vendors, then accepted the better offer from Moon Lake.

Moon Lake's Lu Xianfeng said they wanted to further develop Australasia’s biggest dairy.
