Dairy Council

Who we are

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. 

Our primary role is to 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.
