IDFA and others are working collaboratively and constructively with the administration and agencies to move the needle in the right direction on school milk, trade, standards of identity and labeling, food safety and more important issues for dairy. In this session, Dykes will outline the industry’s many successes and explore new ways we can work together to lead dairy forward.
In this session, you will learn about the challenges they faced, the drive and determination they have, and the mentors and opportunities that helped to shape their careers and their many contributions to the dairy industry.
ON DEMAND: Dairy Permeate is a readily available food ingredient that can provide useful, cost effective solutions to meet today’s food formulations trends. Dairy permeate is an economical way to provide dairy flavor to many food systems. Dairy permeate can provide flavor enhancement, improve texture, cost savings, and browning for low sodium and other food applications.
ON DEMAND: Membrane elements are a critical component of dairy processing. By leveraging the specific performance capabilities of microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, a dairy plant can produce a variety of high-value products for use in sports nutrition products, infant formula, pharmaceuticals and other foods.
Milk is changing. As consumer preferences shift, new technologies are giving dairy processors fresh opportunities to differentiate themselves. Dairy plants are looking at the benefits of Extended Shelf Life (ESL) milk to add value to their products and give themselves an edge in a competitive marketplace.
ON DEMAND: Although the overall milk category has been on the decline for decades, bright spots can be found in the flavored and value-added milk segments. And a number of nondairy beverage categories also are in a strong growth mode.
ON DEMAND: From warehousing to transportation, getting products to customers is becoming more complicated in the dairy industry. Challenges such as capacity constraints, the driver shortage, and end-to-end visibility, as well as more stringent regulations and a growing appetite for a greater variety of products is increasing complexity at an exponential rate. In order to meet these rising demands and get goods from the farm to the processing plant and you customer’s fridge, you need innovative solutions to increase operating efficiencies and lower costs.
ON DEMAND: 58% of food producers worldwide have been affected by a recall in the last five years. Do you know how much you’re spending on food safety and quality? From appraisals and prevention to managing production failures and product returns, the costs can add up quickly – and often aren’t measured. Poor product quality and safety issues impact not just the bottom line but also a brand’s reputation with retailers and consumers.
ON DEMAND: There are many factors that dictate the temperature at which you should operate your filtration system. Product quality could be driving you to run a cooler temperature as higher operating temperatures can give way to bacteriological issues and chemical interactions that induce fouling of the membranes.
