Every year on June 1st, World Milk Day is celebrated. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization had designated this day twenty years prior. It was enacted to encourage people to include milk and dairy products in their regular diets.
Milk is consumed by people worldwide as part of a healthy, balanced diet. It is eaten in a variety of ways, including as a liquid or in the form of ghee, curd, sweets, butter, and paneer. India is the world’s largest milk producer, accounting for 22% of worldwide milk output, followed by the United States, China, and Pakistan.
It was observed in the British Isles during the pre-Christian era before its official acknowledgment. It is still commemorated to raise public awareness of its significance by describing how it is produced and consumed in various forms. World Milk Day will be observed around the world this year, as it is every year.
World Milk Day will be celebrated on Wednesday this year. This year’s World Milk Day focuses on climate change and how dairy products might help the planet withstand its harmful effects. They will, for example, attempt to attain ‘dairy net zero’ by cutting greenhouse gas emissions over the next 30 years and improving the dairy sector’s waste management.
