Arla sparer 160.000 ton vand om året

Danmark Protein forsyner i 2018 samtlige pumper med flowmålere og ventiler, hvilket vil give en årlig vandbesparelse svarende til vandforbruget i 1500 husstande. Arla Foods Ingrediens deler selskabets erfaringer på IFC World Congress, ’Water Management and Sustainability’ d. 14.-15. november I Herning.

Danmark Protein fremstiller vallebaserede ingredienser. Det går strygende med produktion og afsætning, som er i konstant vækst. Det samme har været gældende for anlæggets vandforbrug, som er stort – bl.a. til de mere end 1000 pumper, som er installeret overalt i fabrikken. Thomas Lauritsen er civilingeniør i afdelingen for Production, Technology & Development, hvor han udelukkende arbejder med at finde ud af, hvordan fabrikken kan spare mest muligt vand og energi.

– Vi har et naturligt stort forbrug af pakdåsevand i vore pumper, til fremstilling af ingredienser. Nu er der udviklet ny teknik og knowhow som kan hjælpe os med at mindske forbruget. Alene på pakdåsevandet forventer vi at kunne spare over 160.000 m3 rent vand om året, siger Thomas Lauritsen.

Protein solution cuts cream cheese-making process from 20 hours to just 30 minutes

Arla Foods Ingredients will launch one of the world’s fastest cream cheese manufacturing processes at Food Ingredients South America (São Paulo,Brazil, 21-23 August 2018).

Traditionally, cream cheese-making is a complex procedure that can take up to 20 hours and generates significant amounts of acid whey meaning it is inefficient, expensive and occupies valuable space on the production line. But thanks to a new whey protein ingredient solution from Arla Foods Ingredients – Nutrilac® CH-7694 – dairies can now reduce the cream cheese manufacturing process to just 30 minutes while increasing yield at the same time.

South American consumers: ”We’ll pay extra for more protein”

Nearly two thirds of shoppers in South America are willing to pay extra for a food or beverage product that is higher in protein, according to a survey commissioned by Arla Foods Ingredients.

Researchers from Lindberg International asked 4,000 consumers in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia if they would spend more on buying a product if it contained more protein than a similar product. Across all three countries, 61% of respondents said they would be willing do so.

South America is a key market for Arla Foods Ingredients. In February 2018, it agreed to acquire the shares in Arla Foods Ingredients S.A, its joint-venture in Argentina, that were owned by SanCor. The move will support the company’s ambition for growth in South America.

New Codex standard set to spark permeate boom

The market for dairy permeate powder will “explode into life” – especially in Asia – once a global Codex standard is set, which could be as early as next year.

That’s the forecast made by Arla Foods Ingredients, one of the world’s leading permeate producers and one of a number of major dairy companies involved in the process of creating the new standard.

Permeate is a by-product of whey manufacturing. It is a low-cost, carbohydrate ingredient often used as a bulk sweetener in snacks, chocolate, confectionery, ice cream, desserts, beverages and bakery products. Permeate is highly valued for its ability to replace other, more expensive milk solids in food products without altering the taste or texture, or requiring any changes to processing parameters. Used as an alternative to whey powder, demineralised whey powder and lactose, whey permeate can optimise product quality in a range of applications.
