Chapter Summary

The International Dairy Federation (IDF) is an industrial organization. Its objective is to represent the dairy sector worldwide. The Federation is structured on the basis of national diary associations, who are its members. The National Committee acts as the representative of IDF in its country and is responsible for any approach to its government or other national body on behalf of the IDF. The IDF's administrative and managerial issues are attended by the Director General, who leads the IDF's Head Office and supervises its staff. The supreme body is the General Assembly (GA), which is empowered for achieving the purposes of the Federation. The IDF is financed mainly by the annual membership fee from the current membership of 53 countries. The IDF's most significant role is in the scientific domain, as may be gleaned from the interaction between the Federation and the Codex Alimentarius Commission.
