On the occasion of World Milk Day, several companies around the world participate to celebrate the importance of fresh milk and its nutritional benefits.

World Milk Day was established by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations in 2001 to recognise the importance of milk as a global food.

Last year, the day was celebrated in 104 countries around the world, with a significant increase in participation from 2019.

This year, Malta Dairy Products Ltd, producers of Benna fresh milk and milk products, participated in the global activities by giving back to the community.

The event had a positive turnout from the public who showed interest in World Milk Day.
