Cary Frye, IDFA senior vice president of regulatory affairs, was elected this week to the board of directors for the International Dairy Federation (IDF). Judith Bryans, president of IDF, welcomed Frye to her new position as the dairy processing industry representative to the board during IDF’s World Dairy Summit in Belfast, Ireland.
Frye also is chair of IDF’s U.S. National Committee where she leads efforts to protect and enhance the U.S. dairy industry in the global dairy sector, and she is active in IDF action teams that work on establishing new international standards for nutrition labeling on non-retail containers and front-of-pack labels. Last week, Frye led the IDF delegation attending the Codex Committee on Food Labeling meeting in Paraguay, where representatives from 46 countries completed work on international labeling standards used by governments around the world.
“I am honored to assume this position at IDF, where I can continue to contribute to the important work of the federation and represent the interests of the dairy processing industry on a global scale,” said Frye.
IDF is a leading source of scientific and technical expertise for the global dairy industry, with members from 45 countries representing the majority of the world’s current milk production. This membership is made up of National Committees that frequently consult with other global organizations, such as the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
IDFA will provide highlights from IDF’s World Dairy Summit and concurrent business and committee meetings next week. For more information, contact Frye at firstname.lastname@example.org.
