The Gardiner Dairy Foundation purpose is to maximise benefits to the Victorian dairy industry and dairy communities.
Our strategic investments focus on five key areas; Pre-farm Gate Innovation, Post-farm Gate Innovation, People Development, Industry Support and Community Development
Australian dairy farms must remain profitable and internationally competitive in a complex and challenging environment. Our funding in Pre-farm Gate Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) aligns with the priority areas as identified by the national strategic framework Dairy Moving Forward.
A sustainable dairy industry needs innovation, safe production processes as well as the ability and understanding to adapt to changing markets and consumer sentiments. Our Post-farm Gate funding supports Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) in these areas.
Gardiner Dairy Foundation invests in emerging leaders to help develop a long term future for the industry. Our investment is through programs integrated across the dairy value chain.
Gardiner Dairy Foundation supports industry to drive change and enable improvement through collaborative relationships with key industry stakeholders.
