This year the 45th Nordic Dairy Congress 2020 will take place from 27-29 May 2020 at Hotel Clarion Malmö Live in Malmö, Sweden. The congress also offers an early bird discount.

“Dairy opportunities of tomorrow” is the theme of the congress and the common thread throughout the programme is a relevant selection of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and fixing the climate crisis is the center of attention around the world and the debate is challenging the dairy industry to perform even better. However, the dairy sector remains part of the solution in feeding a growing world population – making sure that people around the world get the valuable and essential nutrients that dairy products and dairy ingredients provide.
