A sustainable future for our Co-operative is core to our strategy – it’s how we create long-term value for future generations.
To achieve this, we’re focused on three interconnected goals – healthy people, a healthy environment and a healthy business.

Healthy People

He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.

We are working together to care for people and make a positive social impact.  To do this we will:

  • Address public health challenges by improving the nutritional profile of our products and promoting healthy diets
  • Provide positive employment for our people by promoting a healthy and safe working environment and developing a diverse, skilled and agile workforce
  • Improve the health of our communities by doing business in the right way, sharing what we do best and playing our part to build resilient, sustainable communities

Healthy Environment

Tiakina te whenua i tēnei rā, hei oranga tangata mō ngā rā e heke mai nei.  Caring for the land today, so that the land cares for us tomorrow.

We are working together to achieve a healthy environment for farming and society.  To do this we will:

  • Improve the health and biodiversity of our land and waters by having a regenerative mindset, reducing the impacts of farming and manufacturing, and working in partnership with others
  • Lead the transition to a low-carbon future by investing in innovation and infrastructure to remove greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our supply chain
  • Meet the growing nutritional demand through improvements in productivity and minimising waste from farm to consumer

Healthy Business

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi.
With your contribution and my contribution, we’ll all thrive together.

We are working together to deliver a sustainable business.  To do this we will:

  • Support healthy, sustainable livelihoods for our farmers by returning the most value from every drop of milk
  • Build a strong co-operative by ensuring our business, including investments, delivers long-term value
  • Meet the changing needs of customers and consumers by leveraging our unique strengths and innovating to create sustainable value for them and us
