Straus Family Creamery, the first 100% certified organic creamery in the United States, said its creamery in Marshall, Calif., and its headquarters offices and warehouse in Petaluma, Calif., were awarded TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) Zero Waste certification at the Gold level.
Thanks to the boost in supply of organic and natural products, including dairy, and increased demand for such products on the part of consumers, the organic and natural market continues to grow. Tied to this growth is a clean-label movement that doesn't appear to be waning anytime soon.
There is a lot more to successful processing of dairy foods than heating raw milk and putting it into bottles or turning it into cheese, yogurt or ice cream. There are factors in play far beyond pasteurization times and temperatures.
As more dairy processors are answering the call for cleaner labels, retailers are adding more shelf space for such foods and beverages. Also, consumers are increasing their purchases of organic products.
The clean label trend (which is dominating the conversation in the food industry) isn’t so much a trend anymore, but a “movement.” This is a common thing I’m hearing when talking to dairy processors and suppliers lately. With consumers making it very clear what it is they want, more food manufacturers are recognizing this movement and are answering the call with new product innovation, more transparency about what they use, changing the ingredients, or in some cases, all of these things.
