Green shoots for dairy industry on the horizon
WHOLE of industry collaboration was the key theme of the annual Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) Industry Leaders Breakfast.
More than 200 of Australia’s leading dairy representatives from across the value chain, gathered in Melbourne to start the conversation about a whole of industry vision and plan, and the need to provoke change.
They heard from leaders of the dairy, red meat and seafood industries on the challenges and rewards of whole of industry collaboration.
Australian Dairy Farmers’ chief executive David Inall said the breakfast provided a chance for industry to discuss how they could work together to seize emerging opportunities in global markets and food trends.
“The past couple of years has been a difficult time for the industry but green shoots are appearing in the form of opportunities and collaborations,” Mr Inall said.
He said dairy industry efforts could be better co-ordinated to encourage innovation, efficiency and political advocacy.
“Through the ADIC, we have collaboration through the value chain and now need to focus on the future and better outcomes.”
