Arla reduces costs and increases accuracy by standardizing labeling and marking printing

A critical part of Arla’s brand identity is being able to guarantee freshness and provide their customers with accurate product information. However their unique set-up, as a company consisting of more than 70 dairies around the world, presented a range of challenges in their quest to provide accurately labeled products. The company needed a single solution with a standardized method of integration between each dairy’s label and direct marking printers and the Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

Using NiceLabel’s label management system, Arla was able to automate printing by implementing a standardized integration with the MES at each dairy. Now, master data flows directly from the MES to the printers, eliminating manual data entry errors, mislabeling and the associated costs. By introducing centralized label management, Arla have a more transparent label management process that helps them ensure accurate product and production data throughout the entire label printing process. The company’s centralized IT team now provides 24×7 support to each site, rapidly addressing issues before they result in production downtime. In addition, Arla can remotely monitor all activity and diagnose errors.

Study: Salmonella detection in powdered dairy products using a novel molecular tool

In the study by Yueming Zhao et al. at Key Laboratory of Dairy Science,  Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin China, the team developed a rapid, specific, and sensitive loop-mediated isothermal amplification technique combined with a lateral flow dipstick (LAMP-LFD) method to detect Salmonella targeting the siiA gene in powdered infant formula (PIF).

The results showed that the method of LAMP-LFD had a high diagnostic specificity of 100% for detection of Salmonella in PIF.

The results verified that the method of LAMP-LFD targeting the siiA gene is rapid, accurate, and sensitive for Salmonella detection in PIF, and that PMA shows great potential to be widely used to eliminate the amplicon contamination risk generated by the highly sensitive LAMP reaction in the detection process.

Peter Giørtz-Carlsen, chef för Arla Foods Europe, kommenterar i Ägarbladet hur Storbritanniens utträde ur EU kommer att påverka Arla. Det är
viktigt att ett handelsavtal inte kommer att begränsa den fria rörligheten.

Arlas affärsmodell bygger på det fria flödet av mjölkbaserade produkter till och från alla länder där vi producerar mjölk i Europa och det kommer att bli avgörande att vi kan handla fritt efter Brexit, säger han.
