Who We Are

Founded in 1943, the Society of Dairy Technology (SDT) is at the forefront of the dairy and food industries.The Society is the recognised professional body fostering scientific and technological developments in the dairy industries of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Whilst its many members are predominantly from these two countries, it also has wider international representation through overseas members drawn from other EU countries and further afield. 

The SDT has its own Journal, The International Journal of Dairy Technology, published in association with Wiley, which currently ranks as the leading dairy journal published worldwide and is the Society's flagship. The Journal publishes original research papers submitted from all over the world, consistent with its growing international standing. These contributions are scrupulously peer reviewed, and also scrutinised by the Scientific Editorial Team and the Publications Committee. 

The Journal also contains non-research contributions, embracing both review articles and more general papers of a technical or commercial nature presented at the Society's Symposia and Conferences. Members receive electronic copies of the Journal on a free-of-charge basis. 

Our purpose is to advance professional development and recognition through knowledge transfer and networking.
