Our objective is to work together in the best interests of the New Zealand dairy industry as a whole, both within New Zealand and internationally. This includes representing the collective position of our members on industry-wide, pre-competitive policy matters relating to the manufacture and export of dairy products.
DCANZ has three priority objectives:
- Maintaining and growing market access opportunities for New Zealand dairy products
- Ensuring New Zealand dairy production and exporting is supported by fit-for-purpose frameworks for food safety and biosecurity
- Strengthening the reputation of New Zealand-sourced dairy products
We work with a range of other organisations to achieve these objectives, including DairyNZ , the Infant Nutrition Council, and others in New Zealand primary industry and food sectors.
