On 12 October 2021, at the IDF General Assembly, IDF admitted Mexico as a new member of the IDF Community.
Commenting on this announcement, Piercristiano Brazzale, president of the IDF said: “We’re very thrilled to welcome Mexico into the IDF membership. We look forward to working with them on the key issues facing the global dairy sector today. Mexico’s expertise and perspective will not only be valuable to the global dairy sector, but having this new country at the table alongside our broad members is incredibly important adding even more strength to our global voice, knowledge and expertise”.
As members of IDF, Mexico will benefit from being part of a dynamic network of leading dairy experts whose aim it is to support and develop the global dairy sector. The activities of IDF members promote policy dialogue, forge links, privilege from foster partnerships, build capacities and develop best practice within the dairy sector worldwide. They will also benefit from easy and quick access to all IDF publications and data, network with key influencers and global dairy experts, as well as contribute to joint responses to intergovernmental organisations. “With the recent addition of Mexico as a new member, IDF now represents over 75% of the world’s milk supply,” said Caroline Emond, director general of IDF. “I am deeply delighted to be collaborating with our new member on important dairy related issues and opportunities facing the global sector. Having Mexico as a member of the IDF community is an asset to us, and we cannot wait to work with them.”
