Nutrition

Dairy’s role in providing nutrition.

Dairy products can play a valuable role in addressing deficiencies in diets and improving health and wellbeing for people around the world.

As people’s diets evolve, dairy will continue to have a valuable role due to its many nutritional benefits. 

To meet the global challenge of feeding a growing population while operating within environmental limits, it is likely that people will increasingly look to plant-based sources of protein, such as soy, rice, and nut-based products.

For those consuming plant-based proteins, dairy products offer multiple essential nutrients which otherwise are not readily available in people’s diets.
