If you visit often, you may have noticed images around the site highlighting National Dairy Council, also known as “NDC.” At Dairy Good, we work closely with the NDC team, and want to give them a special shout out as we celebrate NDC’s centennial!

That’s right – 100 years ago, NDC was founded by America’s dairy farmers. Ever since, NDC has been and will remain committed to pioneering nutrition, health and wellness programs, groundbreaking research, and fostering healthier lives, healthier communities and a healthier planet by:

  • Providing science-based nutrition information on the important role dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt, play in your overall diet, health and well-being
  • Helping launch pioneering programs, like Fuel Up to Play 60 and the Great American Milk Drive, which have and continue to benefit all ages
  • Collaborating with partners like the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American Academy of Pediatrics, School Nutrition Association, World Wildlife Fund, and others to help support communities, feed the hungry and continuously work to improve responsible food systems – from farm to table and table to farm

And that’s just the beginning. NDC is committed to evolving its work to better connect people to where their food comes from and how what they can eat can help them in their everyday lives.

So stay with us as we continue to celebrate all that NDC has done and will accomplish moving forward!
