The Company

At Dairy Australia, our role is to help farmers adapt to a changing operating environment, and achieve a profitable, sustainable dairy industry. We act as the ‘investment arm’ of the industry, investing in projects that can’t be done efficiently by individual farmers or companies.

  • Providing high-level technical support to industry and government on emerging trade and natural resource management issues,
  • Analysing major production, consumption trends in domestic and international markets,
  • Developing accessible knowledge bases on future drivers of industry profitability and sustainability.

The Program Coordinator is responsible for coordinating Trade and Strategy’s domestic and international events and providing program support. Ultimately, the core function of this role is to ensure that all domestic and international events are planned and implemented on time, within budget and to meet high quality standards.
