The International Dairy Federation (IDF) represents the global dairy industry and achieves the best scientific experiences used to support, safe and advance entry into the high-quality dairy industry.

IDF’s vision is to help feed the world with safe and sustainable dairy products. The increasing world population creates the need for nutritional security, and we need to ensure both safety and sustainability. IDF provides a mechanism for the dairy industry that aims to reach a global consensus on how to help feed the world with safe and sustainable dairy products. As the top institution in the global dairy industry, IDF plays an important role in providing the right policies, standards, practices and regulations to achieve this goal. In close collaboration with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), IDF has established an IDF / ISO joint working program to develop analysis and sampling standard guidelines for milk and dairy products. IDF also has a working relationship with many intergovernmental organizations and has a formal status with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Animal Health Organization (OIE), and the joint FAO / WHO Food Standards Program – Food Standards.
