Yili Group, the Chinese dairy giant, has been solidifying its position in the global dairy industry and maintaining its dominance in the Asian market for 10 consecutive years. According to the 2023 Global Top 20 Dairy Companies list released by Rabobank on Aug 29, Yili has secured a spot in the top five global dairy companies and has once again become the only Chinese dairy enterprise to enter the global top five.

This growth rate is double the industry average and has firmly secured Yili's position among the top five global dairy companies and Asia's leading dairy company.
