Dairy Facts 2016


CHANGE. Consumer demographics and desires continue to shift. Global demand for U.S. dairy products is still booming. What impact will these changes have on the products we make and how we market them? The new farm safety net is in place. What’s next? And where is dairy positioned for growth?

CHALLENGE. After years of extensive rule making, most of the Food Safety Modernization Act regulations will begin implementation in 2016. How can the dairy industry create a dynamic food safety and quality environment from the executive offices to the production lines? What challenges will dairy products face in the marketplace as the next generation of consumers exerts stronger influence on diet, shopping and consumption trends?

OPPORTUNITY. New Dietary Guidelines for Americans, reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act and revisions to the Nutrition Facts panel are all expected in 2016. What opportunities will these changes and challenges bring for dairy? Trade agreements currently under negotiation are opening new markets and creating new global opportunities for dairy. Gain perspective from those “in the know.”

This coming year will be one of change, challenge and opportunity for the U.S. dairy industry. Find out what it all means this January.
