What we stand for
The dairy industry is built from the ground up, and we are committed to making a positive difference to our people, our farmers, our customers, our communities and environments where we operate.

Dairy helps you live a healthier life. We take its natural goodness, apply our Aussie ingenuity and make delicious, nutritious food.
In Australia and around the world our industry plays an important role in supporting rural livelihoods and community development.
Strong healthy local environments and communities are the foundation for sustainable, profitable dairy farming.
We know our industry plays an important role in supporting rural livelihoods and community development.
We formed our Fonterra Grass Roots Fund in 2011 because we believe that when we partner with local community groups, we can really make a difference.
On farmland located on the northern edges of Warrnambool sits the new Merri River School. The special developmental school is not the only new thing the students get to enjoy – they’ve just received 10 new mountain bikes with funding from Fonterra.
When the primary cheese plant at our Stanhope factory in northern Victoria was destroyed by a fire in 2014, a major reconstruction project was required to fix it – meaning a considerable number of materials were needed, from fresh timber to new machinery and stainless-steel vats.
Last year was a difficult time. Australians were still recovering from the devastating bushfires when COVID-19 took hold.
Diversity and inclusion go hand-in-hand and at Fonterra we care about being an inclusive and diverse place to work, where everyone can be themselves and be their best in everything they do.
