In advance of the upcoming European Union (EU) milk quota abolition, GEA and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) have developed a mathematical model they claim can increase powdered milk production by up to 5%.
Increasing Chinese and Asian demand for dairy products afforded GEA €120m ($163m) worth of orders from European processors in the last three months of 2013 alone, the German processing technology manufacturer has revealed.
Dairy processors are "taking a hardline to try to eradicate" adulterants, such as urea and melamine, from milk powder, PerkinElmer has claimed following the launch of its new DairyGuard milk powder analyzer.
According to the chief of India’s biggest dairy exporter, India’s milk product exports could jump my more than one-half this year in light of China’s fractured relationship with New Zealand following the latest Fonterra crisis.
Further raw milk price increases are expected over the next six months as a projected recovery in demand for ice cream and other indulgence foods boosts the milk powder market, according to Euromonitor.
