Hixson Director of Client Development Nathan Arnold, P.E., attended the IDFA Dairy Forum 2020 this past week in Scottsdale, Arizona and offers these key findings from his time at the conference:

  • Rapid change is happening in the dairy industry.  Changing consumer demands are one key reason for this flux, but other influences, such as the increase in health and nutritional focuses, are also driving the need to innovate and update within the dairy sector.  One interesting mention from one speaker: It’s important to capitalize on success and cash flow when things are going well to drive change!
  • Leadership, geopolitical landscapes and global trade were big discussion points throughout the conference.  Presenters such as Marci Rossell, Former Chief Economist for CNBC & Co-Host of Squawk Box, Peter Bergen, and Chobani Founder Hamdi Ulukaya offered thought-provoking takes on the impact of global issues and the dairy industry, as well as forging paths to success in a changing consumer landscape.
