Milk is an important part of a healthy balanced diet and World Milk Day provides the perfect opportunity to spread the word. IDF and its members work together to convey this message to the public by promoting activities taking place on and around this day. 

World Milk Day was initiated in 2001 by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), which actively encourages milk and dairy consumption as part of a daily diet. All aspects of milk are celebrated in many countries all over the world, and the number of countries and activities are increasing every year.
