Dairy Council

From the farm
to the fridge

The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland acts on behalf of dairy farmers and processors, communicating on the natural goodness and quality of Northern Ireland milk and dairy foods. 

We communicate factual information to allow people to make well-informed choices about the dairy products they consume, and on the place of dairy in a healthy, sustainable diet.


Milk and dairy foods are naturally rich sources of a wide range of nutrients and make a significant contribution to nutrient intakes and diet quality in Northern Ireland, at all ages and stages of life.
