After a two-year recess due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the next IDF World Dairy Summit 2022 will take place in New Delhi, India from September 12 to September 15. The International Dairy Federation (IDF) is glad to announce the opening of the registration today for its renowned major annual event in the global dairy sector.
IDF WDS 2022 is an unparalleled occasion for all dairy experts, leaders, and interested stakeholders, from around the world to connect, learn and exchange about the dairy sector worldwide. Among the Summit’s attendants will be business leaders, scientists and technicians, health and nutrition experts, marketing professionals, and a diverse, international audience. Under the theme “Dairy for nutrition and livelihood”, WDS 2022’s program includes various scientific, technical, business, and marketing sessions.
The 2022 edition will also introduce new highlights as the IDF Dairy Innovation Awards and the Early Career Scientist Prize, both of which will be awarded during the event, as well as the existing awards and acknowledgments, namely the IDF Award, given in recognition of remarkable contributions to global dairy, IDF Prize of Excellence, in acknowledgment of an outstanding recent contribution to the Work Programme of IDF, and the Yves Boutonnat International Milk Promotion Trophy, a competition initiated in 1989 by the IMP Group.
Mr. Meenesh Shah, Chairman, NDDB, and Member Secretary INC-IDF said “India last hosted the International Dairy Congress in the year 1974. Those were the years when we kick-started our ambitious plan to become self-sufficient. Today India is the largest milk-producing country in the World and this feat has been achieved through millions of small and marginal dairy farmers for whom dairying is an important source of livelihood. The tremendous transformation of the Indian Dairy Sector in the last 50 years is worth witnessing and we are eagerly looking forward to welcoming all stakeholders to come to India and make the IDF World Dairy Summit 2022 truly a global event again.”
IDF’s President, Piercristiano Brazzale, says “Participants will have the opportunity to rejoin the dairy community in person after two years during which most of the events were performed virtually”, and he adds: “This will give them the chance to personally interact and network with colleagues from all over the world”.
Mr. Brazzale further says “Attendants will also have access to the latest science and research, innovation and technology, and good practices applied to the dairy sector as well the state-of-the-art in business and marketing”, and he also affirms: “They will also be able to learn more about the Indian Dairy Sector, one of the largest and most interesting in the world. In this regard, the programme includes technical tours around Indian production and processing sites. We are very grateful to the Indian National Committee and for organizing this Summit with the support of all IDF’s Standing Committees, community of experts and our Head Office”.
