We spoke with some leading suppliers and experts about what’s new in detection and inspection systems for dairy processing. In this article we discuss this new technology, what dairy processors are looking for and what they should be aware of.
Maryland's Kilby family has been farming for 100 years. To position itself for success into the next century, it built a dairy processing plant that bottles milk and churns ice cream under the name Kilby Cream.
It was not long ago that domestic demand afforded dairy producers a premium for their milk compared to their international counterparts. Similarly, domestic end users of dairy products such as cheese and butter can no longer look to the likes of Europe and New Zealand for cheap fat and protein alternatives.
If you were hoping that this clean label thing would have blown over by now, you can keep hoping. Or just throw in the towel and accept it. Market researchers Innova found that in the dairy sector, items with one or more clean-label claims accounted for 49% of 2016’s launches to date, up from 41% in 2015. Innova counted claims related to natural, organic, non-GMO or no-preservatives/additives.
