Why In Focus is created

Farmers, government, industry advocacy and businesses across the supply chain require independently produced, unbiased data on the industry to inform strategic decisions and policy formulation.

Dairy Australia publishes scheduled data used by farmers, service providers, government and processors to inform decisions, playing a key industry role in quantifying the flow of milk from across Australia that is processed into a wide range of dairy products and then sold into diverse markets in Australia and overseas.
