This is a very important step for the IDF, because knowing the level of innovation and technology from Yili, which is a leading company in China, will give us a great contribution in the work we are doing every day to support the dairy sector around the world. I am sure that we will work hard together to contribute to the dairy sector and also to China's dairy sector to improve quality and reward technological innovation.
