The International Dairy Federation is the leading source of scientific and technical expertise for all stakeholders of the dairy chain. IDF’s mission is to help nourish the world with safe and sustainable dairy.
IDF engages all stakeholders in productive activities and research projects to further current knowledge and science on a wide range of issues. Today, dairy is one of the most vibrant and strategic sectors, with a major impact on national economies, public health and the environment.
Since 1903, IDF is a recognized international authority which contributes actively to the development of science-based standards for the dairy sector.
IDF members are organized in National Committees, which are national associations composed of representatives of all dairy-related national interest groups including dairy farmers, dairy processing industry, dairy suppliers, academics and governments/food control authorities. IDF Head Office is located in Brussels, Belgium.
The International Dairy Federation (IDF) was invited to join this European consortium for its global expertise and its commitment to tackling antimicrobial resistance in the dairy sector to ensure animal and public health, as well as food safety. The project will provide an opportunity for IDF members in Europe to test best practices; these can be used as learning tools for responsible use of antimicrobials agents in cattle on a global scale.
