Strategic plan


Dairy Australia’s Strategic Plan for the 3 year planning period 2016/17 to 2018/19. 

  • Dairy Australia remains committed to the ADIC vision: “Australian Dairy – Prosperous, Trusted, World Renowned Nutrition”, by driving industry services and innovation for the ultimate benefit of levy payers.
  • 2015/16 has been more challenging, and 2016/17 may be difficult generally.
  • Agriculture has become a focus for local and international investment. The big industry challenge is to profitably grow farm production to fully take advantage of regional potential over the next decade.
  • This plan builds on the key programs of work and directional change of the last 3 year plan. It has been constructed in consultation with farmers and representative bodies and provides a focus of effort and expenditure on those matters that the industry sees as important.
  • The plan retains its focus on building the foundations to support resilience and growth.
  • Our core priorities are clear and concise: making farm businesses more profitable and competitive; growing people skills and capability; and protecting and promoting our industry.

Development of Dairy Australia’s 2021-2025 strategy

The purpose of this consultation plan is to outline the approach that we will take in consulting and collaborating with our key stakeholders in order to develop our next strategic plan.

We will hold a series of consultation sessions throughout the first six months of 2020 to seek feedback from key stakeholders as outlined in this document. The feedback and information gathered during these sessions will be used to further refine our strategic plan and ensure alignment of all stakeholders.
