Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the International Dairy Federation World Dairy Summit (IDF WDS) 2022 at India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida.
The four-day long summit is a congregation of global and Indian dairy stakeholders including industry leaders, experts, farmers and policy planners centring around the theme of ‘Dairy for Nutrition and Livelihood’.
The last such Summit was held in India about half a century ago in 1974.
The Indian dairy industry is unique in that it is based on a cooperative model that empowers small and marginalized dairy farmers, especially women.
The International Dairy Agreement (IDA) changed the International Dairy Arrangement, which were set up in 1980.
The inaugural function was also attended by the minister of fisheries, animal husbandry and dairying Parshottam Rupala and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
