The NSW Food Authority licences around 1,700 businesses in the dairy sector. NSW has the second largest dairy industry in Australia in terms of farms and dairy production.
Dairy food businesses need to meet food safety and labelling requirements which depend on each specific business type:
- dairy primary production
- dairy processing
- dairy collection & transportation
- dairy cold stores
- dairy food transport vehicles
The Minister for Primary Industries and the Food Authority consult with the industry via the NSW Dairy Industry Consultative Commitee
