Fonterra - What We Stand For

 

Dairy is our life's work. It's our passion and it's what we do best.

We have always marvelled at the simple nutrition of dairy. In an age when you need a Fonterra Heroeschemistry degree to understand food labels, milk is pure milk, providing the building blocks for a healthy life.

We are proud of our New Zealand roots. Year after year, our farmers in New Zealand work with the land and their cows to bring quality milk to millions of people around the world. They have passed their farming expertise down through the generations, keeping alive the time-honoured traditions that have catapulted New Zealand to the forefront of the global dairy industry.

Since Fonterra Co-operative Group was formed in 2001, we have become the world's largest dairy exporter with nearly 11,000 shareholders. We export 95 per cent of our New Zealand-made dairy products to our customers and consumers in more than 140 countries. Our milk tankers collect around 14 billion litres of milk every year.

No matter where we are in the world, dairy is what makes us tick.

 

Graduate Programme

There are many Graduate Programs available, but none as unique as ours. We recognise that the success of our company depends upon our people. We are relying on the combined skills and efforts of our existing and future team members to build the success of our co-operative, the sheer diversity of what we do and the excitement and challenge of the dairy industry create numerous opportunities for a rewarding and challenging start to your career.

Not only do our graduates have an amazing opportunity to learn about the dairy industry and start putting together the foundations of their career but they get to experience an exciting adventure!  The fun really starts here.  Our graduate programme will see you rotating around the business, experiencing various parts of Fonterra and exploring NZ on our ‘Fon-Tiki Tour’.  If you are looking for a stock standard, corporate routine and environment – this programme is not for you.  Our team are on the move, challenging boundaries and playing outside of their comfort zone, and they love it!
