Pan-American Dairy Congress Gets Under Way in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – Large companies of Argentina, Brazil, the United States, Canada and New Zealand along with international organizations will share their knowledge about the challenges and opportunities of the dairy sector during the 15th Pan-American Dairy Congress, starting Tuesday in Buenos Aires.

“Despite the multiple challenges the dairy business has faced and still faces the length and breadth of our continent, it continues to produce a food that is highly accessible for every home without distinction,” the president of the Pan-American Dairy Federation, Daniel Pellegrina, said in a speech opening the event.

“Looking to the future,” the congress will discuss ways to increase “production, quality, and the safety of the product,” Pellegrina said.

Together with Pellegrina, officials from the Argentine dairy provinces of Santa Fe and Cordoba and the national director of dairies, Alejandro Sanmartino, opened the congress with a refreshing drink of milk.

Some of the challenges the speakers mentioned were the sustainability of small dairies, the growth of veganism, the inclusion of women in the sector and the access to technologies that guarantee the safety of dairy products.

Sanmartino recalled in his address that the UN Food and Agriculture Organization chose milk production as the farming activity that creates the most wealth and best combats poverty.

Argentina generally exports between 25 percent and 30 percent of its dairy output, the executive director of the Milk Chain Observatory in Argentina told EFE.

The main destination is Brazil, though also noteworthy among importing nations are Algeria, Russia and China.
