Lion Dairy

Lion Dairy

We would like to highlight the value our suppliers add for our members. Not only have we negotiated special pricing, see below the additional value adds for our members:

Cold Chain Compliance
All of our milk distributors are audited and held accountable for delivering within strict temperature guidelines. Products are delivered straight from our depots to the customer without breaking the cold chain – something vitally important especially for the aged care sites.

Quality Control
As the manufacturer we have extensive quality control measures in place to ensure all products are produced to the strictest of standards. Milk is periodically taken from the production line for testing which means any issues with the end user can be traced back to time and day the product was made. Milk goes straight from the manufacturer to the customer which minimises the possibility of contamination.

Consumer Enquiries
A fully trained team of consultants is on hand to answer any questions covering a variety of topics including quality, accounts, credits, and any general business.

Credit Terms
CCI members currently enjoy the most generous credit terms available to a Lion Dairy customer – 30 days end of month. This means sites can enjoy up to 60 days credit before they need to pay for their purchases which in turn assists cash flow and the processing and payment of the account.

We have some of the most recognisable brands in the FMCG industry including PURA, Dairy Farmers, Farmers Union, Yoplait, Daily Juice, and Berri to name a few. We constantly invest in these brands to ensure they are up to date with the ever changing markets and consumer preferences. Brands are recognisable and are often linked to quality.

Inherent Goodness
We are proud to say we offer a balanced portfolio of products that make a significant contribution to the diet of Australians. Our milk, yoghurt, and cream provide the goodness of calcium as well as high quality dairy protein, while our juices are a good source of vitamin C.

Supporting SA Farmers
More than 99% of the fresh milk produced at our Salisbury factory comes from dairy farmers right here in SA. We currently purchase milk from more than 50 local dairy farms which in turn generates incomes for them and their families to invest back into in the SA economy.

Supporting Small Business
All of our milk vendors are small business owners who operate as independent milk distribution companies. The milk vendors are our way to market and often work 60+ hours per week, rising in the dark of the night and working until late afternoon. By supporting Lion your members are also supporting small business people who live in SA and who invest in the SA economy.
