        Drinking milk helps to strengthen the immune system, nourish the nerves, nourish the heart, help in the work of the skin cell system. Milk fat provides energy for the body, contributes to lowering blood pressure and reduce the risk of colon cancer.

        Currently, Thais consume 18 liters of milk/person/year or 2 glasses per week, which is 6 times lower than the global average and small amount compared to other countries around the world.
