World Milk Day
World Milk Day celebrates the importance of milk for good health and the dairy sector’s contribution to jobs, communities and the economy.
Established in 2001 by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, World Milk Day takes place across the globe every year on 1 June. Each year, we celebrate World Milk Day in different ways. Watch the video below to see how dairy industry ambassador, Jonathan Brown, is celebrating World Milk Day this year, by talking about how he makes his mornings with milk.
World Milk Day 1 June 2023
The annual World Milk Day campaign celebrated on 01 June aims to recognise the dairy sector’s contributions to nutrition, livelihoods and the environment. This year, Australian Dairy will be encouraging the community to ‘Make Your Mornings With Milk’. Mornings offer many opportunities to increase milk consumption – add it to smoothies, cereal and coffee – it’s an easy, tasty, affordable and nutritious way to start your day!
To highlight the health benefits and irreplaceability of milk, we’re calling on dairy companies, farmers and dairy advocates to support the campaign and get involved by developing your own content using the theme: ‘Make Your Mornings With Milk’, or resharing content posted to @australiandairy socials, tagging #WorldMilkDay #EnjoyDairy.
World Milk Day 1 June 2022
On 1 June 2022, World Milk Day will celebrate sustainable practices in Australian dairy, with a focus on climate action. This year marks 10 years of the Australian Dairy Sustainability Framework through which the industry reports progress against its dairy promise – to provide nutritious food for a healthier world.
To bring the sustainability story of the industry to life we’re calling on farmers and processors to share their sustainability and innovation journey and record a short video to promote on their social channels, tagging #worldmilkday #enjoydairy #sustainability .
World Milk Day 1 June 2021
Sustainability was the theme of World Milk Day 2021, showcasing dairy’s commitment to innovation in reducing the sector’s environmental footprint. The theme aligned with the release of the 2020 Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Report as well as the United Nations Food Systems Summit in September 2021.
Australian dairy promises to provide nutritious food for a healthier world and has made ongoing commitments to dairy people, the wellbeing of the community, our animals and the environment. This is captured in a Sustainable Diets video which dairy farmers and dairy manufacturers were encouraged to share on World Milk Day, along with case studies demonstrating their own sustainability efforts.
