INTERNATIONAL DAIRY FEDERATION INVITES IFAJ TO WORLD DAIRY SUMMIT 2022 SEPTEMBER 12-15

The International Dairy Federation (IDF) created a special opportunity for IFAJ members by offering free registration to up to 10 journalists traveling to New Delhi for World Dairy Summit 2022. IDF also offered discounts to IFAJ members accessing the Summit online.

Carolyn Emond, director general of IDF, said, “World Dairy Summit will be a great opportunity for dairy farmers, leaders, experts, scientists, professionals, journalists and academics to learn, connect and get inspired.”

The setting for this year’s World Dairy Summit—New Delhi, India—is an inspired one. Through a massive nationwide campaign of infrastructure development and improvements in productivity, India’s 80 million dairy farmers have made the country the world’s largest producer of dairy products.

“India’s success story will be shared with the world through the IDF World Dairy Summit, where we can see how dairy is an engine of development and women empowerment in India,” Edmond added.

Check out this exclusive IFAJ online interview with Piercristiano Brazzale, president of the International Dairy Federation, and Shri Meenesh C Shah, chairman of India’s National Dairy Development Board.

You’ll learn about Operation Flood, a national dairy industry modernization campaign that made India the world’s #1 dairy producer and the most exciting place in the world to attend World Dairy Summit 2022 next month. You’ll also hear about the Summit, as well as the International Dairy Federation’s work in all aspects of the dairy industry, including IDF’s massive life cycle assessment of the dairy sector.
