Over 74,000 meals and nearly 900,000 serves of fresh milk

Last year, more than four million Australians experienced uncertainty around where their next meal was coming from.

We’re proud to have continued Fonterra’s partnership with Foodbank to help Aussies in need. In 2018, we donated dairy food to the equivalent of 74,200 meals as well as near 850,000 serves* of fresh milk. 

Dairy is an important food staple sought after by welfare agencies. As one of Australia’s biggest food manufacturers, we partner with Foodbank to help combat hunger in Australia.

Foodbank works closely with farmers, retailers and food manufacturers like Fonterra, to redirect food and groceries away from waste to a network of charities into the kitchens and onto the tables of those who need it most.

In 2018, Foodbank sourced an incredible 77 million meals, or 211,000 meals a day, for Australians in need from Fonterra and other donors.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Foodbank – and making a real difference to people’s lives.
