9 October 2014: Dairy Conference: Excellence from Farm to Shelf

Business Sweden together with the Embassy of Sweden in Australia arranged a dairy conference focusing on how Sweden can partner with Australia to increase the export to and beyond China – leverage on the growth opportunities. The conference pinpointed how technology and innovative solutions can support the Australian dairy industry (dairy farms & dairy processing companies) in increasing the efficiency and production volumes without losing quality. Key Note Speakers addressed the question of how the dairy industry can create best practice over the value chain.

Our belief is that both Sweden and Australia are well positioned to lead the way forward with world class technology and innovative solutions in the dairy industry and therefore the conference aimed at increasing the exchange and knowledge sharing between the countries and the leading companies in the sector.

The conference was attended by just above a 100 key decision makers and stakeholders. This included representatives from larger Dairy Farms, Dairy Processing Companies, Industry Associations, Financial Institutes and Investment Companies. The day was very successful and resulted in many concrete dialogues between the participating companies.
