New England Dairy & Food Council (NEDFC) is a non-profit nutrition education organization supported by the dairy farmers of New England and Eastern New York. Staffed by registered dietitians, we work in five New England states to ensure that health professionals, scientists, media, child nutrition professionals and educators have a credible body of nutrition knowledge upon which to educate or base health recommendations and school programs.

Our Goals

  • Provide the latest science-based nutrition information and research to a variety of audiences
  • Develop effective and exciting nutrition and wellness programs
  • Educate consumers, media, educators, school administrators and health professionals about the health benefits of dairy via presentations, science-based articles and other materials

Our sister organization New England Dairy Promotion Board (NEDPB) is a not-for-profit (IRS 501c6) promotional organization with an office in Winooski, VT. NEDPB partners with dairy brands, retailers, state government and farmers to create promotions, programs and events that promote our region’s high quality dairy products and help people better understand where their milk comes from.  For more information about NEDPB visit
