At Fonterra, we help out our communities where we can. It's about Doing Good Together.

Fonterra Doing Good Together helps solve social or community issues for the success of our communities. Through our actions, we will do the most good by focusing on creating Healthy People, Healthy Environment and Healthy Businesses.

Partnering with Sanitarium and the New Zealand Government means all of us can help create goodness for generations and give children the best start to the day – a nutritious breakfast.

We value the part we play in our community

Being part of this programme helps us to forge strong relationships, grow future leaders while making valuable nutrition available to our tamariki.

The initial aim of providing a nutritious breakfast for kids who might otherwise not get that has been achieved. But, what has exceeded expectations are the communities in and out of the schools that have developed from the breakfast clubs and some of the intangible qualities that have come with that – care, nurturing, confidence and connection. We feel fortunate (and a little proud) to be playing a role in these communities.
