National Dairy Week

National Dairy Week runs from May 12th-18th 2014 and is a nationwide celebration of dairy.

During this week, the National Dairy Council aims to highlight the quality of dairy foods in Ireland, and to raise awareness of how dairy is produced from farm to fridge. It also aims to raise awareness of the nutritional benefits of milk, yogurt and cheese, and the vital role they can play as part of a healthy, balanced diet.
