The aseptic packaging market is picking up steam. Sector sales for the dairy industry will reach $24.6 billion globally by 2024, up from $14 billion in 2017, projects Transparency Market Research, an Albany, N.Y.-based market intelligence firm.
Ask 10 people what "sustainability" means to them, and you'd probably get 10 different answers. Its dictionary definition is simple: the ability to sustain something at its current level. And dairy companies, many of which have already existed for over a century, might know a thing or two about that.
It is a transformative time for heat exchangers. The core dairy processing technology, which plays a key role in pasteurization and the production of such products as milk, cream, ice cream, yogurt and cheese, is undergoing refinements as more plant operators seek designs that enhance product quality while streamlining operating expenses.
Richmond, Utah, is not exactly what one would call a metropolis, it boasts a population of fewer than 3,000 people. Despite its small status, however, the rural town has earned some decidedly big bragging rights.
The small town of Ellsworth, Wis., which is tucked into the Northwest corner of Wisconsin close to the Twin Cities, has a big claim to fame. In a state renowned for its cheese curds, it was the town designated the "Cheese Curd Capital of Wisconsin" due to being home to the eponymous Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery.
Leveraging a virtual waterfall of liquids is essential if operators are to keep processes running smoothly while ensuring facilities remain clean and safe. Yet the effective use of water still requires restraint.
The city of Dallas certainly has earned some bragging rights. It is home to the Dallas Cowboys, the most valuable team in the NFL (worth $5.5 billion in 2019, according to Forbes); the Texas State Fair, the biggest state fair in the nation (with more than 2,000,000 visitors annually); and the Dallas Arts District, the largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation.
