Benefits of Membership

There are a wide of benefits available to UK-IDF members.

We offer three types of membership:

  • Principal for main organisations representing producers and processors.

  • Supporting for companies/organisations which do not directly represent producers or processors.

  • Private for individuals or small companies/organisations which do not directly represent producers or processors.


The annual subscription rates are:

Supporting Organisation            £500.00

Private Member                             £50.00

For this amount you will be sent:

  • One UK-IDF Newsletter.  This is normally issued shortly after the World Dairy Summit and features reports on the main items that were of interest during the Summit. Extra editions may also be produced as necessary.

  • Regular updates of the IDF Publications which have been issued, and the reports that have been received from UK-IDF representatives who have attended meetings on our behalf.

  • Information on forthcoming IDF meetings and, also, various symposiums or seminars that are being held by other companies which might be of interest.

  • Information about the annual IDF World Dairy Summit. You will be sent full details about the event, including details of the speakers who have been booked for the conferences and symposia, the technical trips that have been arranged and information on the practical arrangements, such as how to register, and the arrangements for travel and accommodation.

  • You will also be invited to the UK-IDF Open Day. This features a series of presentations from speakers who are actively invloved in the work of IDF and / or the UK National Committee.  It is normally combined with a visit to farm or research establiahment or processing site that will be of interest to the participants.

Also, as UK-IDF members, you are entitled to a 10% discount on the published price of all IDF publications. These normally take two forms:

  • Bulletins - these comprise articles approved by IDF or short monographs or proceedings of IDF events.

  • Special Issues - these are either monographs written by a group of international experts or the proceedings of an international symposium or seminar.
