Quality education is a vital part of the dairy sector’s development in China. This will ensure highly professional people throughout the dairy chain, according to the latest IDF Dairy Sustainability Outlook report.
Research has shown the importance and benefits of quality education, and the advantages of dairy knowledge and quality education will be beneficial to the whole dairy value chain – from raw milk farmers, to industries and sellers.
To build on dairy sector education, the China Dairy Industry Association, for example, held 50 training sessions and 10 annual conferences over the last decade, benefiting 15,000 people and training more than 5,000 dairy professionals. In terms of university education, such as at China Agricultural University, more than 7000 students studying dairy have been trained over the course of the past decade.
Cautious Chinese buying in the months ahead
China’s economy seems to be strengthening but the global dairy import giant’s appetite for trade may not be so robust.
Quality education cultivates professionals with the concepts of sustainable development; they apply the concept to production and to the whole dairy chain, building a more sustainable society.
