Supply Fonterra

We process about 1.7 billion litres of our farmers' milk each year at seven manufacturing sites in Victoria and Tasmania 

Our business starts with, and relies on, dairy farmers supplying high-quality raw milk to Fonterra across Australia into our plants located in Victoria and Tasmania.

Locally, we work with around 1,100 dairy farmers in regional areas of Victoria and Tasmania.  

We firmly believe that Australian dairy has a strong future. We are committed to partnering with our suppliers for the long term, and ensuring that they are equipped with the right tools to manage their business. There are a number of ways we work to achieve this:

·         Offering superior expertise and support in dairy

·         Rewarding excellence in milk quality

·         Investing in our dairy manufacturing sites to improve our product mix

Our goal is to help our farmers run sustainable farming businesses that are well-equipped to manage through market volatility.  We provide support with innovative, industry-leading services, such as our SupportCrew™ and Anchor Dairy Fund programs, our simplified pricing model, and our Price Risk Management tool.

Following last year’s tough re-set to a realistic milk price in Australia, we are improving the way we work. We’re  getting more timely information to our farmers. We’re also working with industry on a dairy industry Code of Conduct and we’re co-operating with the various inquiries underway.
