The International Dairy Federation (IDF) has grown its member states to forty-three after welcoming Russia and Kenya to the fold.

Founded in 1903, the Federation provides science-based dairy expertise, with some 1,200 experts across the globe.

As members of IDF, Kenya and Russia will benefit from being part of this network of dairy experts whose aim it is to support and develop the global dairy sector.

The activities of IDF members promote policy dialogue, forge links, foster partnerships, build capacities and develop best practice within the dairy sector worldwide.

According to the Federation’s Director-General, Caroline Emond, IDF now “represents over 75% of the world’s milk supply”.

The IDF National Committee in Russia will be led by Mr Belov Artyom, CEO of Souzmoloko, the Russian National Union of Dairy Processors, and the Kenya National Committee for IDF will be led by Mrs Margaret Kibogy, Managing Director of the Kenya Dairy Board.
