First established by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations 20 years ago, World Milk Day is celebrated annually on June 1 to recognise the importance of milk as a global food and as a celebration of the dairy sector and since that time, the advantages of milk and dairy products have been promoted all over the world. It is also imperative to know that dairy is responsible for the livelihoods of so many people, hence its importance in the economic sector.
It’s that time of the year when the weather is draining us with heat and the patio invites us to relax. As we mark World Milk Day 2022 this Wednesday, what better way to enjoy the summers than with a cool and refreshing drink of Strawberry Freak-Shake or Chocolate Lassi?
