We are a New Zealand born Co-operative made up of everyday people who work together to deliver top quality dairy products to the world. We are passionate about doing amazing things with dairy. Our Co-operative, which is founded by the people for the people, can make a difference across the world. 

In Aotearoa, the indigenous peoples, Māori, have a spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. It’s a spirit that we carry into our Co-operative, and one we share with many cultures around the globe, that connects and unifies us all.

Our Co-operative is behind brands loved by people in more than 140 countries across the world. We want to continue delivering the goodness of New Zealand dairy products to the world for generations to come – that is why we are committed to farming in a way that regenerates our farms and the environment.

Working Together

Our Europe business is full of hard-working and dedicated people. With 75 of them working at our factory in Heerenveen, that runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The rest of our European team, made up of almost 200 people with nationalities from all around the world, is based in Amsterdam. Together we are focused on making it happen and doing what’s right.

The engine of our Europe business

Our state-of-the-art facility in Heerenveen is a prime example of the value that comes from combining the expertise of dairy in the Netherlands, with the expertise of dairy in Fonterra.


Thanks to our grass-fed, pasture-based farming practices, Fonterra's New Zealand farmers are already amongst the world's most emissions-efficient dairy producers.

We want farming in Aotearoa New Zealand to continue for generations to come, and in order to do so we know we need to farm in a way that helps to protect and regenerate our environment. 

Dairy Nutrition

We believe that our sustainable dairy goodness from New Zealand provides vital nutrition that will help people lead better lives.

Which is why we take great care of every drop of milk, each step of the way. It’s our dedication and care that enables us to produce safe, high-quality nutrition, and our ingenuity that gives us the ability to unlock more of the potential of milk.
