Fortsatta problem vid TINEs nya stormejeri
Produksjonen av margarin og myse er i full gong. Men Tine sitt nye, og heilt moderne meieri til 1,6 milliard kroner på Kviamarka ved Nærbø i Rogaland, klarer framleis ikkje å produsere all kvitost. Dette har kosta meieriet fleire millionar kroner.
Det nye meieriet på Jæren har kosta 1,6 milliardar kroner, og erstattar fire gamle meieri. Dermed er det den største enkeltinvesteringa til Tine nokon sinne.
Det gigantiske meieriet, som nå er offisielt opna på Jæren, kan ta i mot heile 200 millionar mjølk i året.

ICAs mjölkprodukter ursprungsmärks
Nu börjar ICA Sverige att märka fler artiklar inom det egna sortimentet. Företaget har valt ut produktgrupper där kunderna efterfrågat information om ursprung. Bland annat kommer man ursprungsmärka ost, mejerivaror, frysta grönsaker, torkad frukt och ris på ingrediensnivå.
Först ut är ost, där arbetet med att skriva ut mjölkens ursprungsland på förpackningarna kommer att vara klart under sommaren. Arbetet med att märka övriga utvalda varor kommer vara klart i slutet av 2015 och ambitionen är att därefter gå vidare med fler produktgrupper. Varorna kommer att märkas med både förpackningsland och med råvarans ursprung. Märkningen kommer hamna vid ingrediensförteckningen.
Fonterra begins construction on new 200 Mkr plant in Indonesia
Fonterra today commenced construction on its first blending and packing plant in Indonesia, which will support the growth of its market leading consumer brands Anlene, Anmum and Anchor Boneeto.
Located in West Java, the plant is Fonterra’s first manufacturing facility in the country and its largest investment in a new manufacturing facility in ASEAN in the last 10 years.
Once complete, the plant will have the capacity to pack and blend 12,000 tonnes of advanced and base nutrition milk powder products annually, which is the equivalent to about 87,000 packs of Anlene, Anmum, and Anchor Boneeto every day.
The plant is expected to be operational by March 2015.
Produktion av Arlaprodukter i Ryssland
I slutet av februari invigdes Arlas första produktionsanläggning någonsin i Ryssland. Produktionen sker hos Rysslands tredje största mejeriföretag, privatägda Molvest, som nyligen byggt om ett hårdostmejeri för att komplettera en kraftigt ökad import från Danmark.
Under 2013 steg Arlas försäljning i Ryssland med 35 procent till över 850 miljoner kronor, och målsättningen är att uppnå en omsättning på 2,4 miljarder danska kronor till 2017.
Mjölken som går till Arlas ryska ostproduktion håller mycket hög kvalitet och levereras på avtal från lokala gårdar, med besättningar på mellan 500 och 3 000 kor.
Den nuvarande situationen i Ryssland och Ukraina har inte påverkat Arla mer än att den ryska rubeln har sjunkit.

Norrmejerier satsar 200 miljoner på ostförädling
Norrmejerier startar nu arbetet med att bygga en ny ostförädlingsanläggning vid Umeå mejeri som ska stå klar i slutet av 2015. Det är ett naturligt nästa steg i den satsning på Västerbottensost som inleddes med utbyggnaden av Burträsk Mejeri där produktionen nu nästan ska fördubblas.
Investeringen är i samma storleksordning som utbyggnaden av Burträsk mejeri, totalt närmare 200 miljoner kronor fördelat över två års tid.
I den nya anläggningen får Norrmejerier möjlighet att vidareutveckla sortimentet. Först och främst satsar Norrmejerier på riven ost och fler förpackningsstorlekar, men i framtiden finns många fler möjligheter med den nya flexibla anläggningen.
Investeringen innebär också att Norrmejerier kommer att kunna ta hem det arbete med ostrivning som man idag köper externt.
Tetra Pak launches first bio-based cap for gable top packages
Manufactured using high density polyethylene (HDPE) derived from sugar cane, the bio-based version of TwistCap OSO 34 marks another step forward in Tetra Pak’s ambition to make fully renewable packages. In 2013, the company delivered 1.1 billion bio-caps globally, an increase of more than 80% over the previous year.
80% of the material in a one-litre Tetra Rex® carton is paperboard, which is made from wood, a renewable resource. By introducing the new bio-based cap, the content of renewable material in the package increases by an additional 4%, helping to further improve the environmental performance of the package without compromising its functionality or recyclability.
“Launches of bio-based caps have been appreciated by customers like Valio, the Finnish dairy who is the first to use the new version of TwistCap OSO 34 for its products,” said Christina Chester, Product Director at Tetra Pak. “We are glad that customers see value in our efforts to help them boost their environmental profile.”
Tetra Pak customers using the standard TwistCap OSO 34 can easily transfer to the bio-based version without the need for any additional investment or modification to their existing filling machines.
Claim that raw milk reduces lactose intolerance doesn’t pass smell test, study finds
Despite claims that people who are lactose-intolerant can digest raw milk more easily than pasteurized milk, a Stanford study found no difference between the two.
Some sour news for lactose-intolerant people who hoped that raw milk might prove easier to stomach than pasteurized milk: A pilot study from the Stanford University School of Medicine shows little difference in digestibility between the two.
The study was small — it involved 16 participants — but the lead investigator said the results were highly consistent among all the participants and deflate some of the claims surrounding raw, or unpasteurized, milk.

Study: “High milk protein intake increases cancer risk”
People who eat a high-protein diet during middle age are more likely to die of cancer than those who eat less protein, a new study finds.
The study also found that middle-age people who ate foods rich in animal proteins — including meat, milk and cheese — were 75 percent more likely to die of any cause than those who ate a low-protein diet within the study period.

Benefits of breast-feeding ‘overstated,’ says sibling study
When it comes to nutrition for infants, the medical community largely agrees that ”breast is best.” But a new study in siblings seeking to uncover potential biases suggests breast-feeding may be no more beneficial than bottle-feeding for many long-term health outcomes.
The research, led by Cynthia Colen, assistant professor of sociology at Ohio State University, was recently published.
Colen says that previous studies on the topic fall prey to selection bias, in that they ”either do not or cannot statistically control for factors such as race, age, family income, mother’s employment – things we know that can affect both breast-feeding and health outcomes.”
In the latest study, the team included an analysis of outcomes from families of different races and socioeconomic backgrounds for comparison and found that their results matched those of other studies advocating that the benefits of breast-feeding outweigh those of bottle-feeding.

Tetra Pak makes progress towards environmental targets
Tetra Pak® announces that the company made strong progress in 2013 towards its 2020 environmental targets, focusing on developing sustainable products, reducing environmental footprint across the value chain and increasing recycling.
To make packaging products more sustainable, Tetra Pak focuses on increasing the use of renewable materials from natural resources that grow back when properly managed, such as wood and sugarcane. On average, 75% of a Tetra Pak package is paperboard, made from wood. As a Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) certified company, Tetra Pak is committed to sourcing from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources with the aim of using 100% FSC certified paperboard. This percentage has risen from 38% in 2012 to 41% in 2013. Meanwhile, 32 billion Tetra Pak packages carrying the FSC-label reached consumers last year, an increase of more than 5 billion over 2012.
As a long term ambition, Tetra Pak aims to develop a fully renewable package. One major step forward in 2013 was the global release of the bio-based LightCap™ 30 made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) that derived from sugar cane. Across the portfolio, 1.1 billion packages with such bio-based caps hit the market in 2013, almost doubling the number for 2012.
