Fonterra Farmers

It’s those who get up to see the sunrise who get this country going.
Good things happen when we work together.
As a Co-op our purpose is to secure the highest possible returns for our farmers while maintaining our commitment to sustainability and our communities.

It’s no small decision. There’s a lot to weigh up when choosing which dairy company you’ll supply your milk to. You’ll have a number of things on your checklist: Competitive milk price, dividend payments, secure demand, business support and access to industry expertise to name a few.

Of course, the best decision is an informed decision, which is why we’d like to show you what the Fonterra Co-operative can bring to the table. We believe we have a lot to offer – and together we can achieve great things.

We’re proud of what our Co-op achieves every single day. We work hard to maximise the value of our farmers’ milk and drive the highest possible total payout for them.

Supporting farmers

Fonterra is taking a look at the network of support services in place for dairy farmers to ensure they’re meeting the needs of farmers in today’s increasingly complex industry.

Farmers need to know they can raise issues easily, with absolute confidence they’ll get the help they need to get back on track.

We recognise farmers also have different needs depending on the situation they’re in, or the stage of their career, which is why we’re also looking at the particular needs of sharemilkers.

What role does agriculture play in climate change?

For many, agriculture and its emissions are an easy target in the debate about how the country can meet its obligations to the Paris Agreement.

Agriculture is one of the biggest emitter but it’s important to separate fact from fiction in understanding the role livestock play and what can be done about it to help the country reach its goals.
