The 1st Of June Is World Milk Day

Did you know that today is world milk day?

World Milk Day has been celebrated for the last 6 years and began in 2001. The Food And Agriculture Organisation Of The United Nations set up World Milk Day so that countries around the world could promote milk and celebrate on the same day. On the FAO website it states,  ”The Day provides an opportunity to focus attention on milk and to publicise activities connected with milk and the milk industry. The fact that many countries choose to do this on the same day lends additional importance to individual national celebrations and shows that milk is a global food.”

So let’s raise a glass, milk of course, to World Milk Day.
