about us

The National Dairy Council is thrilled to see the return of Tour de Picnic this year,  and looks forward to reconnecting the story of Irish dairy with the EP audience. We are so thrilled to have them back on board as a sponsor and  so excited to share some of their great training & nutrition tips right here!


We love that 75% of Irish people agree that Irish dairy is the best in the world.  But that’s not just about how great it tastes.  Irish dairy has such a great story to tell - about its nutrition credentials, its sustainability credentials and why it’s such an important part of our heritage, one we should all be extremely proud of.
