In 2015, more than 50 countries around the world celebrated World Milk Day and the number of participating countries is growing each year. The activities included holding marathons and family runs, milking demonstrations and farm visits, school-based activities, concerts, conferences and seminars, competitions and a range of events focusing on promoting the value of milk and illustrating the important role played the dairy industry in the national economy. The Day provides an opportunity to focus attention on milk and to publicize activities connected with milk and the milk industry. The fact that many countries choose to do this on the same day lends additional importance to individual national celebrations and shows that milk is a global food. FAO (was asked to propose a specific day on which all aspects of milk could be celebrated. The objective of world milk day celebration is to increase the public awareness about the importance of milk and milk products, and dairy industry development in Afghanistan.
