Land and Water


Water is precious, and it’s important we look after it now and for the next generations.

Healthy freshwater, soil and ecosystems are essential to the long-term success of our business, farmers’ businesses, and to communities.

Fonterra is working with our Northern Victorian farmers on programs that assist with water efficiency and provide certainty for farmers.

These include:

  • Supporting farmers in understanding their water risk exposure, including one-on-one water risk assessments and education sessions providing advice on what they can do in dry conditions
  • Identifying potential risk management strategies and interest free finance
  • Establishing farm water use efficiency improvements; and
  • Sharing Fonterra’s, and farmers’, concerns with relevant government and industry representatives.
