North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

LAST month, Unilever, one of the world’s largest com­pa­nies, an­nounced its cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of the sus­tain­abil­ity cre­den­tials of Aus­tralia’s milk pro­duc­tion for an­other 12 months.

Aus­tralian Dairy In­dus­try Coun­cil’s In­terim Chair, Terry Richard­son, said en­dorse­ment from a com­pany like Unilever is a great achieve­ment and re­flects the fo­cus that Aus­tralian dairy farm­ers have for sus­tain­able farm­ing prac­tices.

“The Aus­tralian dairy in­dus­try is com­mit­ted to the im­ple­menta- tion of ac­tions to sup­port on­go­ing tar­gets and mea­sures as part of the Aus­tralia Dairy In­dus­try Sus­tain­abil­ity Frame­work,” said Mr Richard­son

“We want to en­sure that the Aus­tralian dairy in­dus­try is recog­nised as sus­tain­able in the eyes of cus­tomers around the world so that our farm­ers and pro­ces­sors can be as­sured that the in­dus­try has a long- last­ing fu­ture.”

In 2013 the Aus­tralian dairy in­dus­try was the first in the world to be recog­nised by Unilever.
