Every year on June 1, World Milk Day recognises the importance of milk as a global food and celebrates the dairy sector.
On World Milk Day, we celebrate the importance of milk! Milk touches the lives of millions of people. It provides us with important for our health nutrients and secures an income for farmers and their families worldwide. Together with our member farmers, we push ourselves to the limit each day to make sure that, in over 100 countries, people can enjoy the taste, versatility and nutrients of our products.
Now and for generations to come
While doing that, we always keep our eye on the future. Not only the future of our farmers but also on the future of our planet. Every day, we work hard to reduce the environmental impact throughout the dairy chain, offer a choice of healthy and affordable products and support the world population to make healthy food choices.
Celebrating World Milk Day
To celebrate World Milk Day this year we invited FrieslandCampina employees and member dairy farmers worldwide to submit videos that show how milk and dairy products keep them going. We received numerous submissions based on which the below compilation was created. Watch the video and raise a glass of milk to celebrate World Milk Day with us!
