Since 1915, National Dairy Council (NDC) has been a non-profit organization founded by dairy farmers and funded through the national dairy checkoff program. NDC has been, and will continue to be, committed to providing science-based education about the nutrition and health benefits that dairy foods provide, while also connecting people to the hard-working dairy farmers who bring nutritious milk, cheese and yogurt to tables across America.
With 100 years of experience and a staff of registered dietitian nutritionists, nutrition researchers and communication experts, NDC works to provide practical information about how eating three daily servings of low-fat and fat-free dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt can offer great taste, nutritional value and health benefits.


We want to inspire people to live healthier lives and are proud to be a part of local communities across the nation — providing current and future generations with the education and resources to help them nourish themselves, their families and their communities.

Our Future

We continue to evolve our work to support the health and well-being of Americans, including healthier children, responsible and sustainable food systems (from farm to table and table to farm), stronger, healthier communities and a better planet today and for future generations.
