TINE endrer merking til «Best før, men ikke dårlig etter»

Avstemningen ble delt på Facebook onsdag 3. januar og nådde over 750.000 unike personer. 7300 mennesker avga sin stemme i kommentarfeltet eller med smilefjes.

– Vi ønsket å la forbrukerne få avgjøre og det har vært et kjempeengasjement! Det er gledelig at matsvinn står høyt på agendaen hos forbruker og vi er klare for å fortsette kampen mot matsvinn, sier direktør for kommunikasjon og samfunnsansvar, Lars Galtung.

Målet med tilleggsmerkingen er at forbrukerne skal få et mer bevisst forhold til at «best før» ikke nødvendigvis betyr at produktene ikke kan spises, og at vi dermed kaster mindre mat.

Arvikabygdens mejeri har ansökt om konkurs

Efter att ha lagt ner verksamheten i oktober i fjol hoppades ägarna till Arvikabygdens mejeri att själva hitta en köpare till den splitternya maskinpark som bolaget köpt in. Det gick inte och i november i fjol ansökte bolaget om konkurs hos Värmlands tingsrätt, skriver ATL.

Advokat Lars Solvik utsågs till konkursförvaltare och står inför det något udda uppdraget att sälja ett mejeri.

Lactalis Acquires Siggi’s Icelandic Yogurt

French dairy firm Lactalis said on Friday it had agreed to buy siggi‘s, the U.S.-based maker of Icelandic style skyr yogurts, for an undisclosed price.

Lactalis said the deal “further expands our yogurt platform in the U.S. with this unique and fast-growing yogurt brand.”

After moving to New York from Iceland, siggi’s founder Siggi Hilmarsson felt American yogurt was too sweet and artificial for his liking. He felt homesick for skyr, a sweet Icelandic yoghurt/curd concoction.

Based on a recipe sent by his mother, Siggi began making skyr and went on to establish his own company in 2005 to sell it in the United States.

Americans buy more plant-based milk copies

As the popularity of plant-based nutrition grows, it seems non-dairy milk is increasingly finding its place in Americans’ refrigerators. New research from Mintel reveals that non-dairy milk sales have seen steady growth over the past five years, growing an impressive 61 percent since 2012, and are estimated to reach $2.11 billion in 2017.

When it comes to purchasing, dairy and non-dairy consumer take different approaches. While nearly all non-dairy milk consumers also purchase dairy milk (90 percent), they tend to consider more factors when purchasing. Non-dairy milk purchasers are more likely to seek out milks that deliver on flavor (48 percent vs 40 percent of dairy consumers), vitamins and minerals (43 percent vs 36 percent of dairy consumers) and that are high in protein (42 percent vs 31 percent of dairy consumers). Non-dairy milk buyers are also more likely to look for ingredients that are natural (46 percent vs 36 percent of dairy consumers) and/or organic (33 percent vs 23 percent of dairy consumers).

TINE avholder en avstemning på Facebook

TINE avholder en avstemning på Facebook der forbrukerne kan stemme på hvilken av tre setninger de ønsker i tillegg til «best før»-dato på TINEs produkter. Målet er at forbrukerne skal få et mer bevisst forhold til at «best før» ikke nødvendigvis betyr at produktene kan spises, og at vi dermed kaster mindre mat.
Dette er setningene forbrukerne kan velge mellom:

  • Best før 01.01.18, Etter: se – lukt – smak
  • Best før 01.01.18, og ofte god etter
  • Best før 01.01.18, men ikke dårlig etter

Når avstemningen avsluttes fredag 5. januar vil TINE gå i gang med å merke produktene, de første produktene med den endrede merkingen vil mest sannsynlig være i butikk i årets andre uke.

Valio introduces Valio Oddlygood™ non-dairy product range made from Finnish oats

Valio introduces a new range of plant-based products: the spoonable Valio Oddlygood™ gurts and the Valio Oddlygood™ oat drink – both made from Finnish oats at Valio’s Riihimäki and Turenki plants, in Finland. The new gurts and the oat drink will be available in stores in Finland in February 2018 and in Sweden in spring 2018. Milk will continue to be the focus of Valio’s operations also in the future, and the new product innovations complement our offering.

Valio’s new plant-based products complement Valio’s milk-, fruit- and berry-based product offering. Valio Oddlygood™ gurts are a spoonable, yogurt-style snack made from Finnish oats. The Valio Oddlygood™ oat drink is also made from Finnish oats and can be enjoyed on its own or used in smoothies or for baking or cooking.

Is it possible to prevent type 1 diabetes by avoiding cows milk?

The long-awaited result of the TRIGR Study, published in JAMA, shows that baby formula in which the cow’s milk proteins have been split does not prevent type 1 diabetes in children with genetic risk for type 1 diabetes.

Previous studies have indicated that early exposure to complex foreign proteins, such as cow’s milk proteins, increases the risk of type 1 diabetes in individuals with genetic risk for type 1 diabetes. “In 2002, we therefore embarked on a large-scale study on 2159 infants with a family member affected by type 1 diabetes and with genetic risk for type 1 diabetes to find an answer to the question whether delaying the exposure to complex foreign proteins will decrease the risk of diabetes”, says Professor Mikael Knip from the University of Helsinki, the leader of the international TRIGR Study.

The results show that in this large international randomized trial weaning to an extensively hydrolyzed casein formula during infancy did not result in a reduction in the incidence of type 1 diabetes compared to regular intact cow’s-milk-based formula after about 11.5 years of follow up. Accordingly there is no evidence to revise the current dietary recommendations for infants at high risk for type 1 diabetes.
