Fonterra Supply Chain

Fonterra Supply Chain

Our milk ends up in dairy products in more than 140 countries around the world and we have stringent quality standards from the farm to the consumer.



High quality dairy products start with high quality grass.



Our farmer families are committed to the strictest standards of quality control through regular on-farm testing and independent farm and environmental assessments.



Our Fonterra tankers use cutting-edge milk testing technology to ensure only milk of the highest standard is processed.



Our processing sites are all internationally accredited with world-class quality and safety systems that include stringent process control and final product testing.


Packing & Storage

Our products are securely packaged and we use tamper evident seals to minimise the risk of contamination during shipping. All food packaging is coded, enabling us to trace any item through our supply chain and back to the source.



Before our food is exported, we carry out a range of quality assessments specific to the destination country’s regulatory authorities and customer requirements.



Shipping containers are all cleaned, inspected and tested before being packed and then security sealed for their journey to one of the 140 countries we export to.



One of the most important tests of all is made by consumers, who test our products for flavour, aroma, texture and overall enjoyment. This is the ultimate seal of approval and it’s why we’re committed to making Fonterra dairy the best and most nutritious in the world, for our own family and for yours.
