How we create policy

Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) utilises a consultative policy development process to ensure that the national policies we develop, endorse and implement meet the best interests of dairy farmers and our State Members.

Whilst policy development is not a “one size fits all” approach – often involving numerous additional cross-referencing processes – ADF carries out policy development, in its simplest form, through the following process illustrated below.

If the policy is deemed to be relevant to both dairy farmers and dairy processors, it will then be passed to the Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) Board for further development. It is therefore necessary that an Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) policy is an existing ADF policy, before it can be endorsed by the whole value chain.
