Our Values

ADFC is defined by the four Cs: collaborative, co-operative, choice and cost-effective. And all our actions, decisions and investments are guided by these core values.

 

Collaborative

We work with our farmers and partners – we will not compete with our customers. Instead we will co-invest to maximise the efficiency of the supply chain. Our focus is on profitability and fairness for our farmers and for our business partners.

 

Co-operative

Our organisation is based on co-operative principles. Our farmers are shareholders of the organisation and thus have a stake in the business: they share in the business risks, but they also share in the successes. As a co-operative-based organisation, we concentrate on maximising returns for our farmers for both the short and long term.

 

Choice

Our flat milk pricing structure allows our farmers to choose the milk production pattern that is best suited for their farm and their family.

 

Cost-effective

We support a farmer-focused, low-cost model, which we believe is best suited to the dairy industry in Australia.
