June Dairy Month
June is a special and important time of year for our industry. This June Dairy Month, join IDFA in elevating the many ways the dairy industry nourishes people, sustains the environment, innovates for the future, and delivers for communities in the United States and around the world. IDFA will be championing dairy through advocacy campaigns—Dairy Delivers, Dairy Nourishes, Dairy Sustains, and Dairy Innovates. Each week, the IDFA will release new information, products, and resources for you to amplify the many positive aspects of our industry and its benefits to consumers.
The dairy industry plays a vital role in sustainable, equitable and secure food systems by nourishing people, communities, and the planet. Individually, dairy companies are balancing the economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainability throughout their operations. Collectively, the U.S. dairy industry has committed significant resources to achieve ambitious environmental stewardship goals, including GHG neutrality, optimized water use, and improved water quality by 2050. Visit IDFA’s Sustainability Recognition Platform to see below how all participants in the dairy supply chain are working both collectively and individually to significantly lessen our impact on the environment while maintaining a thriving industry that provides essential nutrition to people around the world. Share this page with your networks to help tell dairy’s positive sustainability story.
No other type of food or beverage provides the unique combination of nutrients that dairy contributes to the American diet, including high quality protein, calcium, vitamin D, and potassium, and health benefits including better bone health and lower risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
This June, IDFA is celebrating the health benefits that dairy products provide. Join us by sharing facts about dairy products’ nutritional benefits through your social media platforms with the hashtag #DairyNourishes and #JuneDairyMonth.
Whether it’s milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt, or dairy-derived ingredients, American dairy companies are working to deliver their healthy, safe and affordable products to people around the world, creating jobs in the process.
