Australia China Business Council Victoria is pleased to host a luncheon seminar on the opportunities, challenges and practicalities of exporting Australian dairy products, including infant formula into China.
Last year, Australia exported nearly 4,000 tonnes of infant formula to China, totalling almost AU$76 million. Following the historic negotiations to enter into a free trade agreement with China, there has been significant publicity recently about the increased opportunities for Australian dairy farmers and the strong performance of infant formula producers on the ASX. But how do these positive trends translate into increased production, export volumes and sales to China?
