At Dairy West, we are passionate about the work we do on behalf of Dairy Farmers.
Our mission is to create a world where farmers and the dairy industry prosper and, together, build healthy communities around the globe. Our team is currently 20 strong and growing. Click here to learn more about who makes up the Dairy West team (our staff and board members).
Generally, the work that we do falls into two primary categories – those programs, events and relationships that Build Trust in dairy farming and dairy products and those that Build Demand for dairy products.
Trust | Action | Stewardship
We believe that in order to do great work, it is essential to build trust – with each other, our farmers, our partners and the broader community.
In order to make an impact, we must take action. Our partnerships and programs are built on internal & external collaboration. We believe in engaging our community in positive, meaningful ways that make a difference.
Just as our farmers are stewards of their land and animals, we take oversight of the farmer investment seriously and pledge to make decisions that will drive the most value.
At Dairy West we believe in building partnerships, putting on events, and organizing programs to help achieve our mission. We also believe in employee development and optimization. Our team and work is divided into:
Work with industry and community partners to build demand for dairy products, prioritize dairy research, and identify opportunities for workforce development. To achieve these goals we work with Dairy processors, Universities, and grocery stores. In this area we are focused on solving challenges related to hunger and helping retailers better understand dairy.
Our Marketing team encompasses the work we do in communications (internal and external), farmer relations, and health and wellness. It is here that we focus on building trust through masterful communication and impactful programs.
Developing our team is a top priority at Dairy West. We have a full time staff person dedicated to improving internal processes and identifying ways that our culture, our leadership skills, and our engagement can continuously improve.
No organization is complete without a team dedicated to the inner workings of the business. Our finance/operations team is engaged with all employees and focused on optimizing our processes to truly steward our dairy farmer investment.
