IDF has played a pivotal role in promoting ISO standards among its members worldwide and has made useful contributions to the formulation of international standards and guidelines for the dairy sector.

The Secretary General of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Sergio Mujica, said this in a videotaped message to a Food Safety Conference at the IDF World Dairy Summit 2018 in Daejeon, Korea on 17 October.

“This strong collaboration between the IDF and ISO continues through the development of joint standards for methods of analysis and sampling for dairy products, which brings together dairy expertise and standardization to enhance compliance in food safety and quality,” said Mr Mujica.

“This international conference is a useful platform to bring together global players in the dairy sector to strengthen collaboration on food security, food safety and sustainability, which are underpinned by international standards. The sharing of insights and innovative ideas can bring about greater good for our global community.”
