Read below about the passion and craft of our local dairy makers and creators, and how buying Aussie dairy can positively impact Australian jobs, businesses, economy and communities.
Trish - Dairy Farmer
For Trish, nothing beats running a dairy farm with her family.
"We taught the children from a young age to appreciate where our food comes from, and how dairy farming not only provides for our community, but how we also proudly feed our nation - that's a pretty special feeling."
Lena - Cheesemaker
Lena fell in love with the idea of being a dairy worker when she was just 15.
"I now supervise the cutting and packing room at Maffra cheese. I love the variety of the role (and the cheese of course!) as well as the ongoing challenge of creating new, top-quality products for Aussies to enjoy."
Dave - Delivery Driver
For over 12 years, Dave's been a driving force in the dairy industry. You guessed it, he's a dairy distributer!
"For the past 12 years I've really enjoyed being able to build relationships with customers along the route, right along the dairy supply chain, from cheesemakers to local delis and supermarkets."
Hakim - Cheesemonger
Hakim's job is to sell local cheeses made with the best Aussie milk and crafted by highly skilled artisanal cheesemakers.
"My favourite part of my job is sharing the inspiring stories of the passionate local dairy workers behind every unique Aussie cheese."
Dalija - Sports Dietitian
As the St Kilda Saints dietitian, it's Dalija's job to advise athletes to eat food that’ll help them perform at their best, live healthier and feel good.
"We encourage following the Australian Dietary Guidelines, and that means getting plenty of dairy packed with protein, calcium and essential vitamins – perfect for athletes, growing kids, as well as adults and seniors."
Chris - Chef
When he's looking for fresh inspiration, he often turns to Aussie cheese, butter and yoghurt, because he knows it's made by some of the best dairy producers in the world.
"Aussie dairy producers are some of the world's best, from cheese, butter, yoghurt, we make it all here. Local producers put everything they have into their businesses and it shows in the quality of their products."
