Made by Many

This is the story of dairy that’s loved all around the world, made by many of us.


Made by Many

It’s the tanker drivers, the tyre makers, the bottle filler-uppers, the bakers, the guys who build fridges, the dairy owners, the farmers and chief cheeses, all working together, to keep things turning.

New Zealand

Even if a Kiwi isn’t a Fonterra Farmer or an employee, it’s pretty likely they know someone who is, or they just enjoy consuming our dairy that’s loved around the world.

Otago & Southland

In a part of NZ famous for cheese rolls and “r” rolls, it’s no surprise many people here contribute to making world-class cheddar and deliver it to the world.


People across New Zealand’s flattest region are flat out contributing to dairy. Alongside milk powder, butter and cheese, our internationally renowned stretchy Mozzarella begins its story in Canterbury.

Tasman & Nelson

If there was a standard for community-mindedness, Nelson Tasman would be gold-star. It’s where many people produce world-class milk powder and take special care of their environment.


Our milk flows through the capital and into coffee cups across the region. Wellington, the home of government, is also home to many deserving Fonterra Grass Roots Fund recipients.


The rolling country surrounding Mt Taranaki is home to people who contribute to making our cheeses, specialty milk powders and lactose that’s used as a specialty ingredient globally.

Bay of Plenty

The Bay of Plenty is the Bay of Many. It’s where many people contribute to the goodness of dairy that’s exported and loved around the world.


With 11 Fonterra sites peppered across the region, it’s no surprise that so many careers and livelihoods are related to the production and manufacture of world-loved dairy in the Waikato.


Known for its beautiful beaches and endless summers, Northland is home to many stand out kiwis who help produce some of the best butter around.
