2024 World Milk Day Campaign Material Launched

As we head into Spring, we are nearing the annual celebration of dairy farmers, World Milk Day, on Saturday, June 1. As part of our work with the Global Dairy Platform, we are continuing to manage the campaign development and implementation of World Milk Day. This year’s theme celebrates the vital role dairy plays in delivering quality nutrition to sustainably nourish the world. Dairy is an accessible, affordable, and nutrient-dense food, and an essential part of balanced diets across the world.

World Milk Day was established in 2001 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to recognize the importance of milk as a global food and to celebrate the dairy sector. Each year since, the benefits of dairy products have been actively promoted around the world, including how dairy supports the livelihoods of one billion people. Year over year we have seen an increase in engagement from global audiences. In 2023, the global campaign grew by 30%, reaching over 1.35 billion people, garnering over 324,000 posts, and engaging 111 countries. From Australia to Zimbabwe, the impact of dairy is being celebrated.
