The Australian Dairy Plan is a bold new industry led plan to deliver increased profitability, confidence and unity across the industry. It is a joint initiative of Australian Dairy Farmers, Australian Dairy Products Federation, Dairy Australia and Gardiner Dairy Foundation, with its development led by Independent Chair, John Brumby AO. The plan was published on 28 September 2020.
Reform of industry structures and advocacy arrangements was a key theme during nationwide consultation for the Australian Dairy Plan. In response a group of dairy farmers (called the Joint Transition Team or JTT), was appointed to explore reform options. Its recommendation to create a single, whole of industry national organisation is currently undergoing an industry engagement and design process led by the Organisational Reform Steering Committee.
