Goodness of Dairy

We believe there’s so much goodness in dairy that it’s like a true super food. 
People here in Australia and around the world choose dairy foods as a staple in their diet and dairy is recommended in dietary guidelines as part of healthy, balanced diet for optimal health.

Why? Because it is packed with good nutrients that helps people lead a healthy life.  There’s a unique combination of nutrients in dairy, and they play an important role in growing and maintaining healthy bones, your immunity, the functioning of your nervous system (including your brain), helping to prevent tiredness, maintaining healthy eyes, and so much more.

As people’s diets evolve, dairy will continue to have a valuable role due to its many nutritional benefits. 


As people’s diets evolve, dairy continues to have a valuable role due to its many nutritional benefits. To meet the global challenge of feeding a growing population while operating within environmental limits, it's likely that people may increasingly look to alternative sources of protein, such as soy, rice, and nut-based products in addition to dairy foods. However, dairy offers multiple essential nutrients which otherwise are not readily available in people’s diets.  Dairy is an important source of nutrition and supporting good health – at every age and every life stage.
