Our Governance Development Programme

The Governance Development Programme was established by the Fonterra Shareholders’ Council and Board of Directors in 2006 to help address dairy industry and rural sector succession needs.

The primary objective of the Programme is to create a pool of future farmer leaders by equipping participants with the skills and capabilities required to govern rural organisations and potentially Fonterra.
