Partnering with us

We know it’s no small decision.
There’s a lot to weigh up when choosing which dairy company you’ll supply your milk to.

You’ll have a number of things on your checklist: a competitive milk price, secure demand, business support and access to industry expertise to name a few.

Of course, the best decision is an informed decision, which is why we’d like to show you what we can bring to the table. We believe we have a lot to offer – and together we can achieve great things.

What will it look like?

We’re committed to partnering with our farmers for the long term and ensuring that they are equipped with the right tools to manage their business, and there are a number of ways we work to achieve this:​

  • Offering market-leading expertise and support in dairy through Farm Source Professional, a dedicated team who provide advice on a range of topics including finance, HR, agronomy and milk quality to help improve farming systems and profitability
  • We provide a 24/7 Service Centre to help sort out any issues quickly and an online income estimator so farmers can see how supply or price changes will impact their business
  • Paying a competitive milk price and providing farmers with choice of payment systems enabling them to farm the way they want
  • Supporting the Proud to be a Dairy Farmer program which aims to develop the next generation of dairy farmers and upskill employees.
