Welcome

NDC has helped provide science-based education about the nutrition and health benefits that dairy foods provide and helped connect people to the hard working dairy farmers who provide nutrient-rich milk. Like our farmers, NDC aims to help foster healthy products, healthy people, healthy communities and a healthy planet – now and for future generations.

The National Dairy Council ™ (NDC) encourages collaboration among researchers and funding agencies in order to foster a healthier society by leveraging existing resources and expertise. Therefore, NDC recognizes that there may be instances when additional support is needed to enhance existing non-NDC funded projects. Principal investigators with an existing grant, either pending or active, may apply for supplemental support if:

  • The project is evaluating the effects of dairy foods or ingredients on health (Nutrition Research)
  • The project is examining new ways to improve the safety and quality of dairy foods or ingredients (Product Research)
  • The investigators would like to add additional dairy-related arms/analyses to a study that was not originally examining dairy foods or ingredients
