Industry Engagement and Strategic Support

Engagement with industry stakeholders is a fundamental enabler in Gardiner Dairy Foundation’s RD&E and People and Community Development programs. In addition, the Foundation strategically invests in a number of short term and on-going projects and activities that support the interactions of people across the dairy value chain. These activities address emerging issues and needs of the dairy industry and dairy communities. This approach gives the Foundation a high level of agility, enabling us to support immediate issues and to influence our longer term, ongoing investments.

Gardiner funds Thought Leadership events to stimulate discussion and debate on contemporary industry issues. Each year Gardiner hosts the Dairy Leaders Luncheon, an occasion for a broad cross-section of industry people to gather to share knowledge and ideas.


Regional Development Programs

Australian Dairy Plan
