Brexits betydelse för Arla

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.

Study:Thermolon lowers fouling

Evaluation of a sol-gel–based stainless steel surface modification to reduce fouling and biofilm formation during pasteurization of milk by Dr Dylan Zhe Liu et al. at Kansas State University.

Milk fouling and biofilms are common problems in the dairy industry across many types of processing equipment. One way to reduce milk fouling and biofilms is to modify the characteristics of milk contact surfaces. This study examines the viability of using Thermolon (Porcelain Industries Inc., Dickson, TN), a sol-gel-based surface modification of stainless steel, during thermal processing of milk.

The Thermolon-modified surface showed potential in the thermal processing of milk, offering significantly lower fouling and bacterial attachment than the control surface.

Rabobank: Butter Spreading, but Protein Failing to Lift

There is hesitation in the market as the outlook for currency changes, production levels, and stocks fuels short-term volatility, according to the Rabobank Global Dairy Quarterly Q1 2017.

With butter prices continuing to trade at near-record levels, it’s tempting to talk of ‘market spreads’. ”The spread between the elevated butter prices and skimmed milk powder prices—which continue to fall—has never been bigger and continues to widen, although it’s nearing its climax.

The market will again look to the European Commission to support European SMP prices—and therefore global dairy prices—as it now seems all but certain that intervention buying will be needed again in 2017.

As the year progresses, Rabobank sees global butter prices remaining firm. They will be needed to maintain margins due to the persistent low value of skimmed milk, which is likely to remain weak, but stable, supported by limited stocks in Oceania and intervention buying in Europe. Cheese prices are also likely to remain stable, given the continued growth in export markets. WMP prices are also likely to remain stable for the rest of 2017, supported by limited suppliers and limited available stocks.

Fortsatt smörbrist i norr

På grund av ökad efterfrågan på exempelvis Norrgott och grädde kommer Norrmejerier inte producera vanligt* smör under 2017. Norrmejerier fortsätter dock produktionen av Norrgott och har kunnat öka mängden av ekologiskt smör, nu i större förpackning.

Den främsta anledningen är en ökad efterfrågan på feta produkter. På två år har exempelvis försäljningen av Norrgott ökat med hela 20 procent. Under samma tid har även försäljningen av Norrmejeriers grädde ökat med 10 procent.
