Arla Dano®, a farmer-owned company and major player in the global dairy space kickstarted this year’s campaign tagged ‘9jaMilkFest’ on it’s social media handles with teasers and a friendly call on competitor and complementary brands to join them in the quest to nourish Nigeria. The campaign was driven on the heels of this year’s global World Milk Day theme “Enjoy Dairy; It’s Good Nutrition” as the brand leveraged on this theme to enjoin Nigerians to enjoy dairy.

For good measure, a citywide rally was held by Arla Dano® on the World Milk day and the day before to sensitize and sample the general public in markets and neighbourhoods across the length and breadth of the cities of Lagos and Ibadan.
The event climaxed on June 1st with a farm-themed celebration at the Ndubuisi Kanu Park, Alausa, Ikeja, which was hosted by ace comedian, Funnybone and TV/Radio host, Larry Foreman with over 2,000 guests in attendance.
