Member Services

The MPO prides itself on its customer-centric focus. Philip Swart is in charge of the department of member services. He has a Master’s degree in nutrition and more than 30 years’ experience in the South African dairy industry. He is also responsible for the quarterly publication of the feed price index in The Dairy Mail.

The MPO organises and is involved in a variety of activities across the country aimed at stimulating member participation and imparting the latest information to our members. Each of the regions is well-represented by one or more local MPO directors and a regional coordinator, and each team decides on the best approach for their region.
