Dairy proteins can prevent stunting, slow sarcopenia, reduce incidence of low birth weight and more. We are helping UNICEF in its application to Codex for a global standard for ready-to-use foods with dairy in the formulation.
The United States has arrived as a major player in the global dairy market. But if U.S. dairy exporters do not show continuous improvement, and if rules and regulations are not altered, then off-shore dairy and nondairy competitors will chip away at our position.
Neither droughts nor threatened port closures nor a shaky global economy could deter U.S. dairy ingredient manufacturers. Last year, exports again were 13% of milk production. It’s a fact: the industry keeps getting better at exporting.
