About Fonterra

Australia is the source of Fonterra’s largest milk pool outside of New Zealand and home to some of the country's favourite dairy brands.

We know dairy. With a long history in dairy, we harness our global dairy expertise and local knowledge to support our farmers, partners and people.

We collect around 20 per cent of the total Australian milk pool annually from our farmer suppliers.

This milk is made into the many Fonterra dairy foods that generations of Australians have grown up with and love, including Perfect Italiano™, Mainland™, Western Star™, and Bega™. 

We’re proud that our dairy made with Australian milk is enjoyed by millions of people in more than 100 countries.


We collect around 20 per cent of Australia's milk every year.


We are proud to work with around 1,100 farmer suppliers in Australia.


We are Australia’s leading foodservice and ingredients provider of dairy.
