Our focus is people and helping our members further their dairy industry career – in whatever sector they work. We do this through networking, technical learning, product competitions and our publications.
The Dairy Industry Association of Australia (DIAA) is a professional association for people working in dairy product manufacturing and allied trades.
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.
b) Mentoring Program
Mentoring the next generation is how we retain high levels of knowledge and skills in our industry. In 2020, the DIAA introduced a mentoring program.
All members who can offer their knowledge as a mentor or want to learn as a mentee, please contact Kristine Manser, DIAA Executive Officer & DIAA Federal Secretary
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. You can read the DIAA Constitution here.
d) President's Theme
Every year, the DIAA National President selects a theme that is particularly relevant to the DIAA and the industry. The President's Theme sets the direction for the DIAA and is picked up by all DIAA State branches in their annual conferences and other DIAA events.
