World Dairy Summit 2022 is being hosted by India. The country got the opportunity to host the event after a long gap of 48 years as the last time it hosted the World Dairy Summit was in the year 1974. During the event, India will showcase its transformational journey through unique smallholder dairying primarily based on the cooperative strategy.
The Indian dairy industry is distinctive because it is built on a cooperative model that gives small and marginal dairy producers, especially women, more authority. The World Dairy Summit 2022 will feature a presentation on the Indian dairy industry's success in empowering more than 8 crore dairy farmers, which was made possible by the government of India's numerous initiatives for the improvement of the dairy industry, driven by Prime Minister Modi's vision. Over the past eight years, milk production has increased by more than 44 percent. The event will further aid farmers' exposure to international best practises.
