  • World Milk Day

    World Milk Day

    June 1 is World Milk Day. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) started this day to acknowledge the role of dairy products in our daily lives. Milk is a global food. The Milk Story is an independent Dutch platform that wants to discuss the role of the dairy sector with a broad audience and relevant stakeholders. With Cartoon Movement, The Milk Story explores different perspectives on milk, with editorial cartoons. Although this might not seem a subject that automatically suits editorial cartoons, the themes that relate to the production are important ones. Cartoons produced for this project focus on sustainable agriculture, and the need to feed a growing world population.
