National Dairy Council
National Dairy Council (NDC), the non-profit organization founded by dairy farmers and funded by the national dairy checkoff program, has been committed to research-based nutrition education and communications since its start in 1915. NDC is dedicated to bringing to life the dairy community’s shared vision of a healthy, happy, sustainable world – with science as its foundation.
About NDC Research
For the past century, National Dairy Council (NDC) has spearheaded research to provide a credible science base for educational outreach on behalf of dairy farmers and the dairy community. In that time, we have supported groundbreaking scientific research, including that of Dr. E.V. McCollum. He was the first to make the scientific link between dairy foods and good health in 1917. And it was Dr. McCollum who suggested milk be fortified with vitamin D. Today, our registered dietitians, nutrition research, product research, environmental science and communication experts across the country carry on our traditions of discovery and scientific collaboration to help safeguard public health.
