Mexico joined the International Dairy Federation (FIL) as a new member, an organization that represents more than 75% of the world’s milk supply
The admission officially took place at the FIL General Assembly held this Tuesday.
FIL has more than 1,200 experts in 39 countries.
In addition, FIL provides a mechanism for the dairy sector to reach a global consensus on how to help feed the world safe and sustainable dairy products.
As the world’s leading dairy organization, FIL plays an important role in ensuring that the proper policies, standards, practices and regulations are in place to achieve this goal.
At the same time, as a member of the International Dairy Federation, Mexico will benefit from being part of a dynamic network of leading experts whose objective is to support and develop the dairy sector worldwide.
The activities of FIL members promote policy dialogue, forge links, privilege development partnerships, build capacity and develop best practices within the dairy sector around the world.

Also Mexico will benefit from easy and fast access to all FIL publications and data, will establish contacts with key influencers and world experts in dairy products, and will contribute to the construction of responses and joint positions directed to intergovernmental organizations.
In this regard, Piercristiano Brazzale, FIL president, said: “We are very excited to welcome FIL’s membership to Mexico. We look forward to working with them on the key issues facing the global dairy sector today. Not only will Mexico’s experience and perspective be valuable to the global dairy sector, but having this new country at the table alongside the other members is incredibly important, adding even more strength to our global voice, knowledge and experience.”
The FIL National Committee in Mexico will be led by Carlos Villarreal, President of the Dairy Commission of the National Agricultural Council.
