World Milk Day

Every day is a day to enjoy milk, but on 1 June there is even more reason to share our love for milk. On 1 June every year, the world celebrates World Milk Day, instituted in 2001 by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations to recognise the importance of milk and other dairy products as a source of nutrition for people all around the world. Each year the global dairy industry promotes the health benefits of dairy and celebrates our food heroes – the producers of milk, the producers of processed milk, the manufacturers of the other dairy products and the retail, who make it possible for us all to enjoy dairy daily.

World Milk Day sets the stage for the Consumer Education Project (CEP) of Milk SA, together with the South African dairy industry, to showcase the goodness of milk and other dairy products. For this year’s event, the CEP will create awareness about the health benefits of dairy on various platforms – from print to online sources to social media – under the RediscoverDairy umbrella.
