2014 ADIC Dairy Dinner
The Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) officially launched the Australian Dairy Vision with a commemorative Dairy Dinner on 1 October, 2014 at The Boathouse By The Lake, in Canberra. Over 100 parliamentary representatives and industry dignitaries gathered to acknowledge the dairy industry’s significant contribution to the Australian economy over the past 225 years and to mark the formal unveiling of the Vision.
Guest speaker, Federal Minister for Agricultural, The Hon. Barnaby Joyce MP praised the dairy industry for its progress and proclaimed that despite challenges facing the industry, its prospects for the future are promising. Mr Joyce said he was committed to working collaboratively with the Opposition in order to reach the goals set out by the industry’s vision. Shadow Minister for Agriculture, The Hon. Joel Fitzgibbon also acknowledged the collective commitment of dairy industry leaders, who have worked together with the ADIC to develop the Dairy Vision as an industry benchmark.
Guests enjoyed a dairy inspired menu designed to showcase the industry’s world-class produce, including the 2013 Annual Grand Dairy Award cheese winners, and were entertained by acclaimed soul, rhythm and blues vocalist Darren Percival.
This year’s ADIC Dairy Dinner will took place in Canberra on 14 October, 2015. Stay tuned for more information and to purchase tickets online.
