About "Milk Day/Milk Month" in Japan (6/1~ 6/30)

In 2009, J-milk designated June 1 as "Milk Day" in Japan, in line with the intent of the FAO, which advocated "World Milk Day," and also designated the month of June as "Milk Month" in which entire people in Japan’s dairy sector collaborate to communicate the value of milk. Together with members of "Smile Project for Milk" and milk fans, we carry out various activities for "opportunities to express gratitude" in order to celebrate “Milk Day/Milk Month” and promote understanding for the value of milk and dairy products as well as the dairy initiatives.
