Fonterra - sophisticated data and people management

With farms stretching across all of New Zealand, we face a heavy demand for sophisticated data and people management to maintain effective systems controls.

We capture data on-farm electronically, with audit completion safeguards and automation applied across a variety of systems.

QCONZ manages and delivers annual audits, non-notified and follow-up audits, traceback and inhibitory auditing. We manage water, environmental compliance, animal welfare and emergency services related to milk quality. Recorded data is transmitted to Fonterra, usually within 24 hours of the visit occurring, often much sooner.


A team of 35 auditors manage quality and compliance for 7,600 Fonterra dairy farms.
