European Dairy Association, ASSIFONTE and Dairy Industry Ireland invite to the EDA Annual Convention 14th – 17th November 2018 Dublin.
The title of ‘A Green Future for European Dairy’ has been chosen as the theme of this year’s convention – perfectly fitting in with Ireland’s long-standing and unique grass based dairy system, where sustainable farming, mild climate and luscious landscape lie at the core.
This convention will bring together Europe’s most influential thought leaders in the areas of Dairy and Agriculture from across industry and government. Speakers at this convention will include EU Agriculture Commissioner Mr Phil Hogan who will give the key note speech at this year’s European Dairy Platform.
The European Union approves EDA Guidance for ‘Cheese as raw material’ and ASSIFONTE ‘Good Manufacturing Practice Guidelines for Processed Cheese’
“The EDA guidelines for ‘cheese as raw material’ are a concise and state of the art compendium on the high safety and quality of cheese as raw material within the processing industry. These guidelines are completed by the ASSIFONTE ‘Good Manufacturing Guidelines Practice for Processed Cheese’, which set an EU benchmark and a best practice manual for the processed cheese industry. Both guidelines, that will be translated into all 23 official EU languages, underline the global leadership of the EU cheese and processed cheese industry also when it comes to safety and quality”, stated Alexander Anton, secretary general of EDA and of ASSIFONTE.
