About World Milk Day
World Milk Day is celebrated across the world on June 1st each year since 2001. This day was established by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN (United Nations) to help people recognize the importance of milk as a global food. The day is celebrated to raise awareness regarding the importance of the dairy sector and the activities related to it. June 1st was chosen as the date because many countries were already celebrating milk day during that time of year.
