We’ll listen, and understand our community issues, needs and what matters.
We’ll offer our skills, expertise and help to provide a positive contributions in the communities we are part of. And, we will form strong relationships that can deliver real value for the long term.
We might not have the answers, but we’ll learn together. It’s about offering a helping hand, not a handout. Working together, not apart. Being there when we need to be.
It’s about Doing Good Together.
Fonterra is a founding donor and through Fonterra Brands New Zealand (FBNZ) has donated more than 2.5 million dairy servings across New Zealand since July 2020.
Our Co-operative was created through a community of people working together to help each other.
The communities we are part of have always been important to us, and it’s through Hapori - meaning community, kinship and coming together for a common cause that we intend to continue to create meaningful impact in our communities.
Our Hapori programme works with 11 regional communities throughout NZ to identify community needs & support through our key strengths.
We support a wide range of initiatives & projects throughout regional New Zealand. These include school groups, educational groups, charitable trusts, sports clubs and local emergency services for a wide range of environmental, community and health and safety initiatives.

Together, we do good things.
The Merri River School puts a big emphasis on bike education and road safety – now the students have ten new mountain bikes to ride around on.
Each year our Stanhope site gives 50 trailer loads of material that gets upcycled into things for the community. The Shed has become a place of creativity, friendship, and support.
The 2018 St. Patrick’s Day fires were devastating to the farmers and communities in western Victoria. The Bostocks Creek CFA was fundraising for a new vehicle, it only seemed right we made a contribution.
