The World Milk Day has been an official occasion since 2001 when the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) set the first of June to celebrate the importance of milk as global food and to recognize the vital contribution of the dairy sector to economic growth, livelihood and nutrition. Since then, it has become a yearly event being participated by many countries throughout the world.
