Building International Relationships
Learn how Dairy Australia works to build strong partnerships with key international customers.
As the world's fourth biggest dairy exporter, Australia is known for its high quality, safe and nutritious products. Australia's diverse range of dairy farms and processors of all sizes allows us to deliver world class dairy for our valued customers.
Australia has a long history as a trusted supplier in international markets. In the early 1960s, Australia made significant investments in joint ventures into South East Asia. These early relationships form the backbone of many of the trusted partnerships we see in the region today. Similarly, across the wider Asia region, Australian processors have a proven track record in building strong business partnerships spanning several decades.
International markets continue to be important for Australian dairy today as the world becomes increasingly interconnected. The milk we produce here in Australia not only supplies our domestic consumer market but is also processed into high quality products that enter our key international markets. Access to these markets ensures farmers obtain a competitive milk price.
Our mission is to foster a positive culture where everyone prospers from our farmers to our valued customers around the world, because with Australian dairy, everyone thrives together.
Dairy Australia builds strong relationships in our key markets, working together to overcome regulatory and policy issues to maintain and grow our export markets.
Dairy Australia provides technical support for industry and government in policy negotiations that aim to improve Australia's access to key markets. The International Market Development program aims to develop a preference for Australian dairy by reinforcing its position as a trusted, agile and reliable supplier of high-quality dairy products.
