Supporting farmers and our communities

As an Aotearoa New Zealand Co-op made up of thousands of farming families, we know the good that comes from working together.

Alongside our dedicated farmer owners and community partners, we work collectively to deliver natural dairy goodness, and make a positive impact in the communities we live and work in.

Supporting Fonterra Farmers

We’re on a continuous journey to support resilient intergenerational farming.

And when it comes to dairying, regenerating our natural resources is intrinsically linked to safeguarding the environment and communities we depend upon. 

So, Fonterra’s team of Sustainable Dairying Advisors are working with our farmer owners to develop tailored Farm Environment Plans. Through The Co-operative Difference, we recognise tho​​se who achieve certain practices across the Co-op, environment, animals, people and milk quality.  

Caring for communities 

Supporting communities and nourishing those who need it most.

Alongside our partners in New Zealand and around the world, we’ll continue to nourish those who need it most and support sustainable community projects.

Helping to nourish the planet

Our milk contains a naturally nutritious, unique bundle of more than 10 essential nutrients that have multiple health benefits.

Natural dairy has a critical role to play in providing the world with high quality nutrition as part of the sustainable food systems of the future.

Our people

He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people. 


We strive to create a workplace culture that is driven by our purpose and values, that inspires and encourages true collaboration, so we can all do our best work for our Co-operative.
