The Association for European Dairy Industry Learning (AEDIL) was established in 1992 by European organisations, which were responsible for the vocational education and training in the dairy sector in their countries. Soon, other countries joined the association, with dairy oriented group associations and societies who particularly support the needs of vocational, further and continuing training in the dairy sector. Meanwhile the number of members has increased to 15 members.
