Your vote counts

The year 2024 promises to be quite an election year, with many countries off to the ballot box. I hope the voters choose politicians who will do the longer-term thinking that is required now, both for their countries and for the planet.


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.

Heading up north

I can’t help thinking that what people are now looking for on the main street of cities and towns, is specialism. This is where the cheesemonger and the butcher can take aim at the consumer wallet.

Ageing well

Dairy UK’s Stronger for Longer event last year, examined the research done in using dairy to slow bone loss, preserve muscle mass and add nutrition to the diet of the older folks among us.

Getting together

No matter what happens, dairy keeps going to provide nutrition and drive innovation in the sector in so many areas. We pull together and make things work, while making dairy a sustainable, low-carbon, empowering segment of the larger food industry.

Moving forward with British dairy

The great and the good were out at Raffles London at the OWO, which welcomed the industry as the first event at the hotel. Suzanne Christiansen reports

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.


New cats September

With the start of September comes the new school year, and two rather mischievous kittens. Meanwhile, preparations for the Dairy Industries Expo crank up.
