The International Dairy Federation (IDF) will hold its annual meetings in Axelborg, Copenhagen in conjunction with the IDF Global Dairy Conference from 13th – 15th October with 350 dairy people expected to participate worldwide together with several hundred additional on-line participants to the Danish Dairy Board organised event.
The agenda of the conference is scheduled by a working group headed by the director of the Danish Dairy Board Brussels, Ms Kirsten Holm Svendsen with registration now open.
Says Ms Kirsten Holm Svendsen: “The general theme of the conference is ‘A Changing Climate for Dairy’. In other words, it deals with the work on climate solutions carried out by the dairy industry itself, and how the surrounding world – the political and economic conditions – currently changes due to national and international climate goals.”
The conference will open with welcome speeches by Danish Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Rasmus Prehnand and EU Commissioner Stella Kyriakides. This will be followed by the Dairy Leaders Panel, whereupon several CEOs of dairy companies will showcase their visions for the global dairy sector over the coming years and discuss several strategies and visions of their respective companies to nourish the world with safe, nutritious, and sustainable dairy products.
The core of the three-day conference will be a wide range of dairy-related presentations and debates in six sessions with the following headlines: Food Safety, Processing & Technology, Sustainable Diets, Farming, Politics & Economics and Marketing. All sessions revolve around the conference theme ‘A Changing Climate for Dairy’, and all presentations will be available live on-line for those registered.
Said Caroline Emond, IDF Director General: “We look forward connecting with our worldwide dairy community at the IDF Global Dairy Conference 2021 in Copenhagen and virtually. The cancellation of the IDF World Dairy Summit 2020 and 2021 due to the covid-19 pandemic has been difficult and we are thankful to our colleagues in Denmark for accepting to host this year event which will give us the opportunity to share the latest on dairy and discuss the challenges and opportunities for our sector.” For more visit idfglobaldairy.org/
