European Dairy Looks To The Future – ESM Speaks To Giuseppe Ambrosi, EDA President
In March, the European Dairy Association (EDA) announced the appointment of Giuseppe Ambrosi as its new president. Ambrosi, the chief executive of speciality Italian cheese producer Ambrosi s.p.a., joined the EDA board in 2020, and is a longstanding chairperson of Italian EDA member Assolatte.
