Form 15 April, bidders on the New Zealand-based GDT platform will be able to bid specifically on medium-heat SMP from Denmark and the UK, and low-heat SMP from Sweden and Germany.
“Until now all SMP medium heat from Arla Foods has been sold under EU origin,” said a statement issued by GDT.
SMP is classified for use as an ingredient according to the level of heat treatment used in its manufacture.
High-heat SMP is less soluble than medium-heat and low-heat SMP.
The statement added that those who are “indifferent to the product origin….will still be able to bid on SMP medium heat with EU origin.”
