The NSW Government is committed to supporting the dairy industry in this state and responding to and delivering the ambition of the Action Plan. Both industry and government will play a role in implementing the Action Plan.
The Action Plan makes 28 recommendations across the themes of Research, Development and Extension, Confidence, Skills and Business Resilience and Stronger Futures. The NSW Government has responded to each of the recommendations.
The NSW Dairy Industry Action Plan was developed by the Fresh Milk and Dairy Advocate, Mr Ian Zandstra and the NSW Dairy Industry Advisory Panel.
The NSW Government is creating a Dairy Action Plan Implementation Panel (DAPIP) as a priority. DAPIP will consist of a mix of industry stakeholders and have responsibility for overseeing implementation of the Plan.
Mr Rob Cooper has been appointed as Chair of the DAPIP, with Mr Phil Ryan as Deputy Chair.
The Panel will work with industry groups and government agencies to drive delivery of the actions outlined in the plan, while monitoring and reporting on implementation over the next two years.
If you are interested in joining the DAPIP, please submit your Expression of Interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expressions of Interest are to be submitted by 12 May 2022. Note that the positions are voluntary. The first meeting for the DAPIP has been tentatively scheduled for 30 May.
