World Milk Day

The 1st. of June every year is a very special day when the whole world comes together to celebrate the goodness of milk and its importance as a global food source. Started by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2001, the recognition of the World Milk Day continues to grow as it is celebrated by more and more countries every year. Nothing compares to the goodness of milk.

It is the best source for calcium and vitamin D - two nutrients essential for building strong bones and teeth. It is also rich in protein which is important for building and repairing body tissues. In fact, milk is regarded as one of the most nutritionally complete foods available on our planet and has been part of the human diet for thousands of years.

The theme for World Milk Day 2019 is “Drink Milk: Today & Every day”

Why do we celebrate world milk day? To realise the importance of milk as global food and to pay more attention to activities that are connected with the dairy sector.

World Milk Day was first designated by the FAO (the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) in 2001
Why 1st June? This date was chosen because a number of countries were already celebrating a national milk day on or around this time. While most countries hold their celebrations on 1st June, some choose to hold them a week or so before or after this date.

Did you know? - Heating the milk changes its molecular structure so it is much digestible and easier for human consumption.

A growing number of studies have shown that milk, when consumed as part of a healthy balanced diet, provides several health benefits:

It helps provide protection against bone diseases like osteoporosis

It helps reduce high blood pressure

It helps lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases

It helps reduce the risk of colon and breast cancer

It helps reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.



To obtain the same amount of calcium from a 200ml glass of milk, you would need to consume four servings of broccoli, or seven and a half slices of white bread, 11 servings of spinach, or 15 servings of red kidney beans. To celebrate the goodness of milk.

Daily cows produce the greatest amount of world milk supply mostly from developed countries. It is a vital sector of agricultural businesses in developed countries of the Mediterranean region such as France, Italy, Spain and Greece because the production of milk and its product of cheeses and yogurt are also a valued part of the total dairy industry in developed countries,

Production of goat milk is equally important in countries of the underdeveloped world, where it provides basic nutrition and subsistence to the rural people, which are the majority of their populations, and milk is important in the prevention of undernutrition and malnutrition since milk is the superior source of calcium and protein.

Goats milk is also great for your skin because it is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins as well as high in lactic acid which helps exfoliate dead skin cells and soften your skin. Thus, goat milk serves in a general way four types of the market around the world, such as (1) Home Consumption, (2) Specialty gourmet interests, (3) Medical needs, and (4) Cosmetic goat milk products. So celebrate the goodness of milk yearly on World Milk Day.
