Alignment with the Australian Dairy Plan
The Australian Dairy Plan is a whole of industry, single national plan. Dairy Australia is committed to a close strategic alignment with the Australian Dairy Plan. This includes all five Australian Dairy Plan commitments and focus areas.
The first commitment in the Australian Dairy Plan sets out the need to reform organisational structures. Dairy Australia will actively work with Australian Dairy Farmers and Australian Dairy Products Federation to pursue reform, which is likely to impact in the middle years of this strategy.
The following table provides additional cross-references between the Dairy Australia strategy and key sections of the Australian Dairy Plan.
