We are a New Zealand Co-operative made up of everyday good people who work together to do good things with dairy. Good things with the land we work on and good things for the people that our products end up with. We are passionate about doing amazing things with dairy.

In Aotearoa, the indigenous peoples, Māori, have a spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. It’s a spirit we adapt as New Zealanders, and one we share with many cultures around the globe, that connects and unifies us all.

We want farming in Aotearoa, New Zealand to continue for generations to come that is why we are committed to farming in a way that regenerates our farms and the environment.

Aotearoa, New Zealand can lead the way.

Our Co-operative, which is founded by the people for the people can make a difference across New Zealand and the world.

The heart of our co-op

Our 9,000 farmers are at the heart of our Co-op and we work with them through a partnership approach.

Fonterra farmers

It’s those that get up to see the sunrise that gets this country going. Our farmers are at the heart of our Co-op.

Becoming a Fonterra farmer

Te Pou

Being a New Zealand Co-operative, the Māori world view inspires our mindset. A pou is a traditional Māori way of telling a story through the art of wood carving.

We believe that food and nutrition are essential to sustain us today and for future generations to thrive

Which is why we take great care of every drop of milk, from the beginning, through every step of the way. It’s our dedication and care that enables us to produce safe and high-quality food, and our dairy know-how and innovation capability mean we can do amazing things with our milk to enhance people’s lives.

We farm naturally and because of this, we are proud to have one of the lowest carbon footprints on farm in the world.

We want to be the most emissions efficient and environmentally sustainable dairy farmers. To do this we are reducing our footprint, restoring nature, and adopting a regenerative mindset.
