Partnering with us

Become a Fonterra supplier.

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?

Day-to-day you’ll be in touch with the Fonterra Farm Source team. Farm Source is a connected package of tools and services to assist you in running your farm business. These include:

  • A dedicated Farm Source Area Manager who can provide you with valuable support and assistance with our products and services, and help with on-farm issues such as milk quality.
  • Our 24/7 Service Centre can help with questions or issues such as transport, milk pay or any general queries you have. Call 1800 266 674 when you need help.
  • Farm Source Digital gives you up-to-date information about your production and quality, and allows you to run income estimates in real-time.
  • Farm Source Partners leverages Fonterra’s scale to provide deals and discounts such as 15 per cent off Bega Natural cheese and Western Star at Woolworths and Ritchies IGA, discounts on private health insurance, or even a new ute.
  • Our Farm Source Professional on-farm service provides you with expert assistance in areas such as HR, finance, agronomics, milk quality and animal health and wellbeing.
