Fonterra in Australia

Our Australian operations form part of one of Fonterra’s largest international business units.


We produce great-tasting dairy foods, ingredients for local and global food companies, and products for restaurants, cafes, and commercial kitchens across the country.

Our dairy expertise, manufacturing capability and commitment to sustainability help us grow the volume and value of our products to deliver on Fonterra’s vision.

We operate eight manufacturing sites across Australia where we annually process 1.6 billion litres of Australian milk – the equivalent of almost 700 Olympic swimming pools.

This milk is turned into whole, skim and nutritional milk powders; cream; milk and whey proteins; and our iconic, award-winning cheeses and spreads.
