The Dairy Industry Association of Australia (DIAA) is a professional association for people working in dairy product manufacturing and allied trades.
The DIAA was incorporated on 24 March 1986, following the amalgamation of the Australian Dairy Institute and the Australian Society of Dairy Technology. In 2019, the DIAA changed its status to became a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.
The DIAA's mission is to provide a forum for communication, continuing education, professional growth, recognition and fellowship for all members, sectors and participant organisations involved with the dairy industry.

The DIAA is currently governed by a Transitional Board of Directors. The nomination process for the DIAA's inaugural Board of Directors opens on 16 August. The election process is governed by the following by-laws:
