Dairy industry continues to be recognised
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.
