National Dairy Council

National Dairy Council is dedicated to healthy foods, healthy people, healthy communities and a healthy planet—now and for future generations. At a time when affordable and sustainable nutrition to benefit public and planetary health has never been more important to our world, dairy foods contribute to the solution to address nutrition security, health disparities and well-being.

National Dairy Council (NDC) is a non-profit dairy nutrition research and education organization founded by dairy farmers and funded through the national dairy checkoff program. NDC has been, and will continue to be, committed to providing science-based education about the nutrition and health benefits that dairy foods provide, while bringing to life the dairy community’s shared vision of a healthy, happy, sustainable world.

With more than 100 years of experience and a staff of registered dietitian nutritionists, nutrition scientists and communication experts, NDC works to provide practical information about how dairy contributes to health and sustainable food systems. This includes sharing the benefits of how eating three daily servings of low-fat and fat-free dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt can meet multiple taste, cultural and individual needs to support wellness.
