We provide our Australian suppliers and customers with market information, hedging options, liquidity and local know-how.
Australian milk production generously exceeds domestic consumption and has led to Australia becoming one of the world’s leading dairy exporters, ranking 4th in the world in terms of volume for skim milk powder, full cream milk powder and cheese exports. Australia first began exporting dairy to the UK when Australia’s post-war dairy farming boom took place in the 1950s, assisted by the introduction of bulk milk coolers. After decades of technological and efficiency developments on a farming and processing level, today we see the majority of Australian exports directed to the Asian marketplace, where consumers demand the high quality, flavor profile, safety and reliability that Australian origin is synonymous with.
Ecoval Dairy Trade’s presence in Australia since 1982 (formerly Austral-Expa Dairy Products Pty Ltd.) has enabled us to build strong relationships with all major manufacturers in Australia, whom we have assisted in developing their markets across Asia, Europe, Russia, Africa and the Americas. Our strong relationships with suppliers are key to our business. We strive to provide them with the best possible service, market knowledge and trade opportunities for the short and long term. We believe that having a global network gives us a competitive edge by providing global opportunities with local know-how.
