Research and Trends

In an increasingly complex, fast-moving world, Midwest Dairy helps partners remain relevant to today’s consumers by investing in consumer, category and market research to forecast trends and uncover consumer insights to share with partners.

Feeding our Community

Dairy farmers have a long-standing commitment to the health and well-being of our communities. This is reflected in their significant contributions to addressing the issue of food insecurity, and particularly the impact hunger has on our nation’s children. Working alongside local food banks, schools and a variety of other organizations, the dairy community continues to work toward ensuring every American has access to the essential nutrients found in dairy foods.
