The "IDF Dairy Innovation Awards" this year aimed to showcase the innovative vitality of the global dairy industry, set global benchmarks for innovation, and contribute to achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

Yili, with its consumer-centric approach, continues to ramp up investment in innovation and research and development to drive sustainable development.

The company's Declaring Your Love to the Earth with Actions – SATINE Environmentally Sustainable Packaging with No Ink or Printing product won the "Innovation in Sustainable Packaging" award.

This product features a pure white bottle design, eliminating traditional ink printing on the packaging, while the outer box is made from recycled milk cartons.

The design also promotes recycling, striking a balance between aesthetics and environmental friendliness.
