The IDF World Dairy Summit is the annual top meeting of the global dairy industry attracting about 1,500 participants from all over the world. This year (from the 16 to 21 October) the Summit is organized in The Netherlands and the message is Dare to Dairy!

The IDF World Dairy Summit is held annually by the International Dairy Federation somewhere in the world. This year more than a thousand people from around the world are expected in Rotterdam. The organizing committee has chosen a new approach: it engages the ‘outside world’ to have an inside look. Representatives of civil society are taking the stage to debate with the international dairy community about animal welfare, animal health, climate and energy, and sustainable food.

There is one central question: how could dairy products contribute to feeding 9 billion people? The answer requires a thorough dialogue with civil society organizations and public authorities. Speakers are representatives of the World Wildlife Fund, the US animal protection and the Dutch Environmental Assessment Agency among others. Dare to Dairy and already join the debate online and on twitter.

Participants can also get a taste of the Dutch dairy! They can have an insight at the innovative farming, discover the Dutch cattle breeds or learn about the high-class research and education done in The Netherlands. To avoid missing the summit sessions, the participants enjoy the visits after the conference program, on Thursday 20th and Friday 21stOctober.

This summit is of interest to anyone who has been active in the dairy sector, and who wants to quickly update in the challenges the sector faces. For decades, the Dutch dairy has been in the forefront of developments in the global dairy sector. The entrepreneurship, innovation and international orientation that underpin the competitive position of the dairy sector in The Netherlands is attracting many visitors!

The International Dairy Federation (IDF) represents the global dairy sector and ensures the best scientific expertise is used to support high quality milk and nutritious, safe and sustainable dairy products. For further information visit www.fil-idf.org.
