Green shoots for dairy in­dus­try on the hori­zon

The Northern Star - Northern New South Wales Rural Weekly - - News -

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.”

HOT TOPIC: Col­lab­o­ra­tion is the key for fu­ture suc­cess.
