IDFA provides a wealth of comprehensive information about the dairy industry that is not available anywhere else, such as background on dairy policy issues, food safety guidance and compliance, economic analyses and market updates, international trade and standards, crisis management, training programs and manuals, directories of members and more. The specific challenges confronted by the industry are apparent, and IDFA is proactive in its approach to represent the industry's best interests.
One of the most valuable member benefits is access to an Expert Staff to answer questions and provide assistance. All members are encouraged to utilize IDFA staff as a resource and extension of their own staff. Members are encouraged to participate in IDFA Association Committees and Task Forces to provide their expertise in reviewing and discussing dairy industry issues and to develop guidelines, studies and other materials.
For all members - dairy companies and suppliers alike - IDFA provides the resources to broaden your knowledge and stay abreast of current challenges, as well as opportunities to network with a community of professionals with the same goal - to grow the dairy industry.
Here are specific benefits for each category of membership.
