Regional dairy council partners to drive awareness of nutritional and cognitive benefits of milk, cheese, and other dairy products

DALLAS (September 21, 2022) – Nonprofit regional dairy council, Dairy MAX, today announced a partnership with OpTic, one of the most winning esports organizations in the world. Dairy MAX, representing 900 dairy farm families across eight states, is part of the National Dairy Council. The partnership will lean into OpTic creators and the organization’s esports teams to help connect to dairy farm families and educate the community about the nutritional power and benefits of dairy.

Our dairy farm families are focused on making sure the next generation includes dairy as a trusted source of nutrition,” said Mike Konkle, CEO of Dairy MAX. “We know that 96% of Gen Z in the U.S. plays video games, and we need to meet them where they are. We're excited to collaborate with OpTic as an Official Nutrition Partner.”
