IDF World Dairy Summit 2017 held in Belfast


The UK dairy industry brought together the global dairy community to focus on how to Make a Difference with Dairy at the International Dairy Federation (IDF) World Dairy Summit 2017 in Belfast.

Organised by UK-IDF, the UK National Committee of IDF, the 2017 event took place from 29th October to 3rd November 2017 at the Belfast Waterfront conference centre. Over 1,000 dairy experts from across the globe gathered in Belfast to share their in-depth knowledge of dairy and bring the audience up to speed on the latest developments in the industry.

The theme of the Summit was "Making a Difference with Dairy" and it examined the impact a vibrant, efficient and sustainable dairy industry, with nutrient rich and innovative dairy products, can have on the health of current and future generations, animal health, dairy science and technology, the environment and much more.

It featured eight conferences focusing on marketing; nutrition and health; dairy policy and economics; dairy science and technology; food safety; farm management; animal health and welfare; and the environment. The event also included several high profile sessions, including the IDF World Dairy Leaders’ Forum and the IDF Forum, as well as a series of technical tours showcasing the UK industry’s state-of-the-art infrastructures.
