How to design the future of dairy?

The aim of this conference day is to explore how digitalization can solve the most important challenges the dairy industry is facing today.

Key challenges of the dairy sector today:

  • Icon describing cow milking Low profit margins for farmers & processors
  • Icon describing dairy industry Eroding image of milk & lack of consumer trust
  • Icon describing trust in dairy chain Complexity in the dairy chain and lack of connectivity

Digitalization offers a wide range of opportunities for individual companies and new opportunities for interaction throughout the dairy supply chain. Together we will explore these possibilities to shape the dairy world of the future.

Why should you participate?

  • Dairy is an industry that continues to face an onslaught of challenges. Participants will hear from thought leaders creating new and compelling ways forward.
  • Dairy isn't the only industry grappling with a rapidly changing future, learn how other industries responded and succeeded in paving a new path.
  • Lastly, where do you start in this rapidly changing digital landscape? Connect with counterparts in the industry and leaders to workshop the priorities you should start with to design the future dairy world.
