Dykes Opens Dairy Forum with Blueprint for Building Demand, Opening Markets

Jan 24, 2018
Michael Dykes, D.V.M., IDFA president and CEO, addressed more than 1,000 dairy processors, producers, suppliers and other stakeholders on Monday at Dairy Forum 2018 with a look back at his first year at IDFA and an overview of the association’s efforts to build demand and open markets for dairy products.

He continued his call for increased collaboration across the dairy industry, as well as in the broader food and beverage sector, to emphasize the significant impact that dairy and the food industry have on the U.S. economy.

Dykes also highlighted IDFA’s economic impact tool, Dairy Delivers, and outlined the top three areas that the industry will need to focus on in the future: consumers, innovation and changing markets.

A video of his presentation is available on demand on the Broadcast Live website.
