A distinguished panel of dairy leaders provided their perspectives on the “Next Normal” in the dairy industry, the implications of COVID-19, and how we prepare for an unpredictable future. Following several sessions that encouraged leaders to upend the status quo and the evolution of dairy, this panel provided a prescient conclusion to Dairy Forum’s foray into the future.

“Today’s dairy industry has innovated its way into a consistent growth industry. But to continue to succeed, we need to continue to challenge the way we conduct business, attract talent, and speak to consumers. This year’s Dairy Forum issued that challenge: evolve or get left behind. Those that see that challenge as an opportunity will succeed.”
