About Corio Bay Dairy Group:
Corio Bay Dairy Group (CBDG) is a Joint Venture between the Organic Dairy Famers of Australia (ODFA), Niche Dairy and Wattle Health. At present, the Joint Venture is concentrating on building the first dedicated organic nutritional spray dryer in Australian region. According to the agreement, Wattle Health would receive an exclusive supply of all products produced by CBDG, which would be utilized in Wattle Health’s nutritional dairy range.
ODFA is a co-operative owned by farmers and was established in 2001 to develop organic dairy farming in Australia. Through organic dairy farming, the aim was to maximise the organic farm-gate milk price for co-operative members and to differentiate from the dairy products sold in the commodity markets.
ODFA beats the competition when it comes to supplying organic milk produced in Australia,since farmers of ODFA have certified organic and bio-dynamic farms throughout the Victoria region. Apart from the farms, the farmers of ODFA are certified organic and must comply with a strict set of standards. They do not use artificially produced pesticides, fertilisers etc. and their cows are fed on pasture, completely free from GMO. All these practices, coupled with long-term concerns about the herd’s welfare and health of the land, results in contented cows producing remarkable tasting organic milk and dairy products made from it.
