Eastern Symposium

This year's Dairy Nourishes America symposium will be held in Rochester, NY from April 30 – May 1, 2024, with an optional tour and welcome reception on April 29. This unique event brings champions across the value chain together to build relationships and create solutions that increase our neighbors’ access to the protein and nutrients provided by dairy products.
