Theme: GOT MILK 2.0? How Do We Tackle The Challenging Dairy Market
Date & Location: May 14th-19th 2017, Malang & Surabaya, East-Java, Indonesia
Once every year the Global dairy Farmers (GDF) Congress is organized, each time in a different country / continent. With a group of about 35-50 dairy farmers and industry partners we visit interesting dairy farms, learn from key dairy industry speakers and have good discussions with each other about the future of dairy farming. Related to an actual dairy topic we organize this congress as the GDF management team together with our members, partners and local contacts. GDF offers the opportunity to network with inspirational/aspirational dairy farmers and interesting/successful characters from around the globe. The greatest intangible benefit of course are the deep and lasting friendships across continents develop over time as a result of membership. GDF is proudly exclusive and trust, integrity and confidentiality are assumed. It has always been a fundamental plank of GDF to invite only a small but select representation of dairy farmers and companies from key and emerging dairy industries around the globe. Congresses have taken place, even before it was ever 'trendy' to visit these countries, such as China, Vietnam, Argentina, Russia and also a number of Eastern and Western European countries and USA.
During the annual GDF Congress participants enhance their knowledge by e.g. local farm visits, get inspired by key (non)dairy industry speakers, learn from several business cases and expand their network and leads. We have high level speakers from companies such as Nestlé, McDonald's, Keough Ledman Associates, Rabobank and Juhayna. Next to that, several progressive dairy farmers from all over the globe will share their view on the dairy market, how they tackle the challenges and inform you about their KPI's.
