World Milk day was established by the (FAO) Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN 20 years ago.
It is celebrated to recognize the importance of milk as a global food. Since its inception in 2001, World Milk day celebrations have been joined by many countries.
The number is growing each year as the benefits of milk and other dairy products have been actively publicized throughout the world.
June 1 is celebrated as World Milk day every year. 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of World Milk day. The day is celebrated to bring attention to how dairy supports the livelihoods of one billion people.
The theme for World Milk day 2020 is ‘the 20th Anniversary of World Milk Day’. The day is being celebrated to promote the health benefits of milk and dairy products. Last year, the theme on this day was ‘Drink Milk: Today & Everyday’.
India has become the largest producer of milk in the world with over 150 million tonnes of production in the last few years. This day is celebrated with a lot of zeal in India.
