IFCN Combined World Milk Price Indicator
status: January 2024
IFCN World Dairy Map 2023 is aimed equally at dairy analysts – juniors and seniors, students and professors, milk experts and amateurs.
Data isn’t merely about numbers; it’s a wellspring of growth, innovation, and the security of dairy farming’s future. It’s a testament to the remarkable possibilities at the intersection of technology and agriculture, guiding us towards a brighter, more productive dairy industry.
Building on IFCN’s project work in developing markets, we would like to bridge the big picture of the dairy market with the realities on the ground. With the IFCN Dairy Forum, we would like to open the topic to the public and expand the discussion. We are looking to answer questions like: What can successful dairy strategies look like? How can feasibility and progress be defined and how will it be measured?
We as IFCN talk about dairy tech to support the visibility of ag-tech firms for a better overview and to gain more insights into the dairy tech field. We aim to connect and inspire like-minded people in the dairy world to make better decisions.
Winning dairy strategies in developing markets need the collaboration of stakeholders and scaling up the processes
How to set up winning strategies for dairy in developing markets? Participants from more than 80 countries attended IFCN’s fourth annual public Dairy Forum on 29 November 2023 to learn more about the visions for winning strategies in developing dairy markets.
