2021 NDFA Events

BYRNE DAIRY Supplier member plant tour

JUNE 9th 2-5pm  

I scream, you scream, we all scream for vaccine!
Ok, not quite how the old-time kiddie saying goes but you get the picture.

Now that the US population is eligible or soon to be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine we are excited about getting back together with our friends and colleagues of this wonderful dairy industry.  An industry that kept families and households nourished with pure and wholesome dairy products throughout the pandemic. A herculean effort by so many!

In our small world here at NDFA and NDSA we are planning our first in-person event of 2021. On Wednesday June 9 starting with an NDSA member-exclusive tour of Byrne Dairy’s plant in Cortland, NY! That’s right, NDSA members will have the opportunity to see how Byrne Dairy creates some of the best dairy products and get acquainted with Byrne’s executive management team. Learn how things work under the silos and hear what is important to Byrne’s business and manufacturing process. 

Later that same day we officially kickoff 2021 with our new “Dairy Blender” event! A very casual event open to all NDSA, NDFA, PAMD and NYSCMA members and guests. Designed to create a casual atmosphere of networking with all those we lost touch with last year and a spot to meet our new best friends. The Dairy Blender will provide heavy hors d’oeuvres, beverages, music and laughs. The theme for this event is The Beatles. Our entertainment is a very good Beatles tribute band so toss on a (Beatles) tee and take part in what is sure to be a fun event.  

Of course we will adhere to all gathering guidelines established by the CDC, the state of New York, and good old fashion common sense.

Registration is now open, we look forward to seeing you there! 

Please note there is no fee to attend this tour but it is open only to members of the Northeast Dairy Supplier Association (NDSA)
