Registration open for IDF WDS 2018
Dairy stakeholders from across the globe will meet in South Korea in October for the 2018 International Dairy Federation (IDF) World Dairy Summit.
The event will be held in Daejeon, South Korea from 15-18 October 2018.
Under the theme of “Dairy for the Next Generation”, the summit will explore emerging dairy issues and traditional aspects of the dairy sector while offering expert insight into the technical and scientific expertise that underpins the IDF’s work programme.
The summit provides a platform for participants to exchange technologies and knowledge, identify a common agenda, develop shared solutions and encourages a holistic view of how to improve dairy farming.
Meanwhile, consumption of dairy products in South Korea is rising steadily due to lifestyle changes as more people begin to incorporate dairy into the country’s traditional diet with average dairy consumption reaching 76.4kg per person annually.
Caroline Emond, director-general of the IDF, says, “I am delighted to announce that registration for this year’s World Dairy Summit is now open. I warmly encourage the dairy community to register as soon as possible to ensure they do not miss out on this excellent learning and networking opportunity.
“The IDF World Dairy Summit is the flagship global event in the dairy calendar. We are very excited to be hosting the summit in South Korea for the first time, in what should be an informative event with an abundance of scientific and technical expertise on display from dairy stakeholders across the globe and all levels of the value chain.”
“Inspiring the next generation to connect with dairy in a meaningful manner is a challenge the whole sector needs to address but one I am very confident we will meet successfully as dairy has so much to offer to the younger generation.”
