Management / Our People

At CCFA, we are proud to be producing, distributing, and marketing iconic brands including Canberra Milk to our customers, partners and for the Canberra community for many years. You may have seen our milk vans around Canberra delivering fresh milk, direct from our factory in Griffith, Canberra. We, not only service the ACT, we also service the NSW South Coast and the Riverina with fresh milk made here in Canberra. 

At CCFA we have a passionate, dedicated team who take pride in what they do every day. From producing and distributing the freshest milk and getting it to local supermarkets, convenience stores, and coffee shops efficiently and as soon as we can … so that you can enjoy all the nutritious dairy goodness from our great brands including Canberra Milk, Dairy Farmers, and Dare. 

We appreciate that everyone has a choice, every time that they go shopping and we hope that people are as passionate and proud of where their products come from, as we are. For over 60 years CCFA (Canberra Milk) has been, and continues to be, the only milk processing factory in ACT - located in Mildura Street Griffith just up from the Fyshwick Markets. We support the local community in many ways, including providing direct jobs to 70 people and supporting many other local businesses each day. We are proud of what we do and proud to be producing and distributing fresh milk in Canberra, for Canberra.

CCFA and Canberra Milk have been part of many community groups over the years. Since 1982 Canberra Milk has had an association with the Canberra Raiders (NRL) - The Milk - is the front of jersey sponsor for several years.  CCFA has also supported the Super Rugby ACT Brumbies since their inception in 1996, the ABL Canberra Cavalry since 2012; and W-League Canberra United in 2016.

Over the years we have also supported many other community organisations such as the Canberra Agricultural Show; the Snowy Hydro South Care helicopter service representing over $1.5 million in donations to assist the new service being implemented to help care for the needs of NSW & ACT; and DVCS.

In addition, we help at various local events each year including local fetes, school fundraising, and charities. We are also proud to support schools with free milk every week to fuel their breakfast programs, helping disadvantaged kids. We also supply the Early Morning Centre in Canberra with milk each week, facilitating those who sleep roughly the opportunity for a meal, training courses and other means to help them find a new path.
Canberra Milk is truly an iconic local brand, and close to the hearts of many Canberrians. “Proudly Ours” is our way of demonstrating how we feel and see the Canberra Milk brand. 
Thank you for your interest in our business at CCFA, we will continue to work hard to ensure that Canberra Milk together with our other beloved brands and locally made products are here for your enjoyment for years to come.
