Suppliers

Farm with confidence.

Australian Consolidated Milk guarantees the opening price because we understand the value of good planning and a relationship you can bank on.

With 300 farmers supplying 500 million litres annually, ACM is big enough to be a strong, reliable, efficient processor but small enough to remember the importance of each and every farmer.

We also understand that every farm is different. Whether you farm conventionally, organically or with an A2 herd, a partnership with ACM will help build the profitability of your business.

ACM Milk Supply

FY23  ACM Milk Supply

Statement of Circumstances in which ACM is prepared to enter into a Milk Supply Agreement (published in accordance with section 12(2) of the Dairy Industry Code)

ACM is a commercial milk processor with a plant located at Girgarre in northern Victoria.   Decisions about the circumstances in which it is prepared to enter into milk supply agreements with dairy farmers are made with ACM’s long term business objectives in mind.

ACM’s focus is on the value-added stable dairy markets as close to the end consumer as possible.  ACM’s business model prioritises the delivery of previously agreed quantities of milk (whether that be conventional, A2 or organic) to its customers under ongoing contracts.  In order to increase reliability in the volume and quality of its milk supply, ACM aims to develop positive ongoing working arrangements with a valued network of dairy farmer suppliers.   ACM believes that this approach builds certainty and profitability for all stakeholders.

For the year commencing 1 July 2022, ACM will enter into one of its standard forms of milk supply agreement (as applicable to the type of milk to be supplied and payment terms/exclusivity option selected by the supplier) in the following circumstances:

  1. Supplier’s farm is located in the MurrayDairy, WestVicDairy and/or GippsDairy region.

  8. Supplier has sufficient production capacity to generate a minimum collection of 800 litres of milk which is no more than 48 hours old.
  9. ACM may, at any time, decline to enter into any new milk supply agreements if and when it has secured sufficient supply of milk to meet its then current contractual commitments to its customers.
