Fonterra's Corrie Goodwin, Head of Responsible Dairy, has been appointed Vice-President of the Australian Dairy Products Federation (ADPF).
Her appointment demonstrates the level of expertise she holds across all facets of the dairy industry, from a career spanning more than 20 years. Corrie joins a distinguished group of leaders at ADPF dedicated to championing the value of dairy and the ongoing success of dairy processors.
"At its core, the ADPF stands for the benefits of dairy, encompassing health, nutrition, economic contribution, sustainability, and the positive impact of dairy processing on regional communities,” Corrie said.
“These are critical to the ongoing success of the industry. I’m looking forward to working with ADPF President John Williams and the wider executive team to deliver their strategic priorities, and to continue the great work the ADPF do in advocating for health, economic and social benefits of dairy,” she said.
Corrie's commitment to the sector stems from her deep-rooted connection to dairy, having grown up on a dairy farm in northeast Victoria. She has since established herself as a leader in dairy, with two decades spent working across milk quality, animal health and welfare, biosecurity, and sustainability.
Corrie currently leads Fonterra's Responsible Dairy team, playing a vital role in delivering responsible dairy practices and supporting around 600 farmers who supply their milk to Fonterra.
The ADPF is the nation’s peak body representing commercial members of the Australian dairy industry. Its members, including Fonterra, work collectively to ensure the Australian dairy industry continues to grow and thrive.
Corrie is also a Director of the Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC).
