The Fonterra Grass Roots Fund supports New Zealand communities where we operate by funding their smart ideas, projects and initiatives.

Through the fund we aim to sustain healthy, vibrant communities by sponsoring ideas, projects and initiatives that make a real impact.

We have supported over 1,800 initiatives since the programme was established in 2007, making a huge impact in our local communities across New Zealand.

Sponsorship funding has provided worm farms and recycling facilities for local schools, seedlings for riparian planting programme and equipment for emergency response services.
