New President For International Dairy Federation

Dr Judith Bryans (pictured), Chief Executive of Dairy UK, has been elected President of the International Dairy Federation (IDF). Dr Bryans takes over from Dr Jeremy Hill of New Zealand, who was elected at the 2012 World Dairy Summit in Cape Town, South Africa. In her new role, Dr Bryans will steer the work of IDF with the support of the IDF Board, the Science Programme Coordination Committee (SPCC), the IDF Head Office and IDF National Committees. She has been involved with IDF at all levels since 2005 and is a well-known figure in the IDF community.

Speaking after her election at the recent IDF Annual General Meeting, Dr Bryans said: “I am honoured and deeply grateful for the trust the IDF community has put in me to lead the organisation for the next four years. Jeremy has done a wonderful job over the last four years and we owe him our thanks for his dedication and the myriad of ways in which he’s strengthened the organisation in his time as President. IDF is involved in every aspect of the dairy supply chain and is a trusted and respected partner for many international organisations such as the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) and Codex Alimentarius. With the support of the Board and the SPPC, I will work hard to strengthen our existing relationships and reach out to new global partners.”

IDFLogoShe added: “The work of IDF is essential in creating a positive future for the dairy industry. It has a unique structure and shows what can be accomplished through global cooperation. With an unrivalled network of experts, we can pool our resources and expertise together to ensure the role of dairy is recognised properly at every level. We want to secure a positive and sustainable future for the dairy industry across the world and build on previous successes to put dairy front and centre in the global debate.”

Dr Jeremy Hill said: “I started my Presidency by saying that such was the importance of IDF that if it did not exist, the dairy sector would need to create something like it. My four years as President has not weakened my view of this. I have been delighted with the progress IDF has made over my four years as president and the value we have been able to create, for the dairy sector and its stakeholders, including our important role in proving the highest quality nutrition to consumers. Moving forwards IDF will be in good hands with a committed Board under the new IDF President, Judith Bryans.”
