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.
Recent torrential rains may have dampened many of Australia’s bushfires, but not before the efforts of some of our Aussie people and farmers volunteered with their local emergency services organisations to help. Meet a few of them below.
Out there in the universe, stars are born every day. But, closer to home in Cobden, Western Victoria, a star is born every second – Australia’s favourite butter, Western Star™.
All of us at Fonterra are saddened by the suffering being experienced by so many in our community. We’re thankful that our people and farmers are safe so far, and our thoughts are with those who have not been so lucky.
Workers at the now-closed factory at Fonterra Dennington have remembered and reminisced over a century of food production and friendships as they hang up their hair nets for the last time.
