Tricks of the cheese trade

The news last week that the UK and Canada had broken off trade deal talks due to Canada’s tariff schemes is set to have an impact on both cheese markets, as the UK provides just over two million kilograms of cheese to Canada annually.

Heat pumps and infant formula

The news that Nestlé is doubling its infant formula capacity while employing heat pumps and other environmental processes to reduce its carbon emissions in the Netherlands is a good news story on all fronts.

Trending in 2024

The Global Dairy Platform, as part of the Pathways to Dairy Net Zero, will offer on 17 January the first quarterly webinar of 2024, which will focus on the potential of animal nutrition to lower dairy’s environmental footprint.

Let’s all go to the Expo

The team at the International Cheese and Dairy Expo is hard at work, planning for the International Cheese & Dairy Expo at Stafford County Showground on Thursday 27 June – which we expect will be Europe’s largest cheese and dairy event overall.


A trip to Cork and the digital future

We travelled to Cork, Ireland, for the Society of Dairy Technology’s 80th Anniversary Conference, which was held at University College Cork on its campus. I for one am excited and looking forward to continuing our work with the Society in 2024, which will involve the International Cheese & Dairy Expo.

The joy of dairy

The Dairy UK Annual Dinner was a highlight of my week last week. It highlighted the good work Dairy UK has been doing throughout the year, from the Dairy Roadmap to standardising carbon footprint tools throughout the industry, to raw milk contracts.
