“Where The Dairy Industry Does BusinessTM

Our History


The American Dairy Products Institute was formed in April 1986 through a merger of the 61-year-old American Dry Milk Institute (ADMI) and the 15-year-old Whey Products Institute (WPI). In April 1997, we expanded the scope of the organization by further merging with the Evaporated Milk Association. ADPI's efforts today build upon nearly 94 years of work and encompasss all types of dairy ingredients.


Now organized as a single body, ADPI serves the needs of its members by:

   • Promoting the industry’s image and enhancing its growth and development.
   • Assisting members with technical, statistical and marketing matters.
   • Harmonizing standards relating to manufactured dairy products.
   • Promoting the dairy products processing industry and its products through relations with affiliated industry organizations and applicable government bodies.
   • Providing a strong, effective voice for the manufactured dairy products industry.


ADPI accomplishes these tasks through its committee structure and relies extensively on the experience, knowledge, guidance, cooperation and commitment of industry leaders to ensure the continued success of the organization.
