International Dairy Foods Association
The International Dairy Foods Association (IFDA) is a trade association dedicated to representing the interests of the United States’ $110 billion dairy manufacturing and marketing industries and their suppliers. The IFDA provides leadership on business strategies to the 550 companies that make up its core membership, along with educational outreach and policy development for the public and government officials.
The IDFA’s mission is to promote the growth of the dairy industry through its leadership, by removing barriers to domestic and international trade, reducing government intervention in commercial affairs, and by supporting the advancement of dairy science and technology for a higher quality product.
The IDFA can be further broken down into three constituent organizations:
- Milk Industry Foundation (MIF)
- National Cheese Institute (NCI)
- International Ice Cream Association (IICA)
The IDFA strives to promote the best interests of all three of these constituents with its actions.
