Bega Cheese has launched an investigation into recent trading activity to determine whether it is being stalked for a potential takeover, after New Zealand's Fonterra launched an audacious after-market raid. Bega, is seeking to ascertain who has been behind the recent share trading activity that has pushed the stock up 40 per cent since announcing a takeover offer for Warrnambool Cheese & Butter in mid-September.
