Today, the dairy world serves over 7 billion consumers and provides livelihood for about 1 billion people who live on dairy farms. The key challenges for dairy stakeholders lie in the complexity of the sector and the high rate of change in a globalized world. More than 130 dairy related companies are collaborating with IFCN, a global dairy research network that helps customers to improve decision-making. Globally comparable economic data for dairy products and forecasts have been used for over 20 years to better understand the dairy world.
IFCN is a company with a strong network approach. Its main pillars are the three core networks of researchers, companies and other institutions.
