Welcome at the 42nd Nordic

Dairy Congress in Finland 2010

By Anna Marie Thøgersen

The congress topics

Mr. President could you please

shortly comment on why the Nordic

Dairy Council have chosen to focus

on this year’s congress theme: New

Technologies and Innovations in the

Dairy Industry.

The alternating Nordic Dairy Technology

Councils (Nordisk Mejeriteknisk

Råd, NMR) has for almost 90 years

arranged the Nordic Dairy Congresses,

and they have always focused on being

highly topical and actual in their

choice of the congress themes. Having

this in mind, the recent Congress Program

Committee decided on the 2010

congress headline, as the high results

and profits within the Nordic dairy industry

is primarily provided by: New

Technologies and Innovations.

20 professional

presentations

The congress includes 20 highly professional

presentations. Which one

is you especially looking forward to

attend?

My personal interest has always been

within fresh dairy products, and

therefore I am looking forward to attend

the topics about enzyme technology.

There is a special morning

session at Saturday the 19th of June

for that. If the practical hurry does

not disturb me, I will attend there.

The 42nd Nordic Dairy Congress takes place in Hämeenlinna,

Finland 17-19 June 2010. This year’s topics are: New

Technologies & Innovations in the Dairy Industry. The Finnish

president of the 2010 Congress, Mr. Kari Toikkanen outlines

his expectations for the upcoming event.

In English

What do you expect to gain by running

the congress in English?

During the past congresses we have

noticed some difficulties for the

translators, especially regarding the

technology. Furthermore, our Nordic

congress participants sometimes

have difficulties reading and understanding

their neighbouring Scandinavian

languages.

We have discussed the language

question several times in NMR, and

this year we decided to run the congress

in English. By doing this, we

can also invite lecturers and attendees

from both inside and outside the

Nordic countries.

Participants from Europe

From which countries and how

many dairy people have you invited

to join the congress?

So far our main marketing has been

targeted towards the Nordic countries,

but we are continuously spreading

our “message” and invitation to

the rest of Europe. In late March we

had mailed more than 10.000 congress

brochures in the Nordic countries,

and by now - in early April, we

have established a databank containing

more than 1200 specific e-mail

addresses of which more than 400 are

from outside the Nordic countries.

Up until now a little more than

100 dairy persons have signed-up for

the congress. Our target is to reach a

minimum of 200 participants, but I

am optimistic to welcome more than

300. But, we urge all our Nordic dairy

friends, colleagues and the congress

sponsors to spread the invitation to

join the Nordic Congress among their

client groups.

The social program

The Nordic Dairy Congresses include

a broad and interesting social program,

why do you find this so important?

During the congress presentations,

the participants are very busy. To offer

enough time for networking and

new contacts, the evening programs

create a natural possibility for socializing,

enjoy Finnish foods and also

get a little taste of our culture. ■

very welcome to contact

Dairy products mean

healthy business

Health and Wellness is the strongest trend in the food industry today –

and nowhere is it stronger than in dairy. From low fat to probiotics to heart

health, the healthy dairy products lead the way. Consumers recognize

yoghurt, milk drinks and cheese as safe and natural products, and they

are hungry for more.

Chr. Hansen is the world’s leading supplier of healthy ingredients for

the dairy industry. We believe that a close partnership with our customers

is the natural forum for creating new and innovative solutions. Let’s meet,

discuss recipes and inspire each other on how to create tasty, healthy and

safe dairy products for today’s and tomorrow’s consumers.

Milk & Dairies in the

Nordic Countries

By Anna Marie Thøgersen

The largest and the smallest

There are huge differences between

the sizes and market orientations of

the Nordic dairies. On top of the scale

we find Arla Foods, the regions absolute

largest dairy possessing 6.3 billion

kg of milk out of the total annual

milk amount of 12 billion kg. Arla

Foods is too, very export oriented and

No. Country Dairy

The approx. 80 large and small Nordic dairies produce all

kinds of dairy goods sold on the home markets as well as on

several export markets. Yearly, the Nordic dairy farmers deliver

almost 12 billion kg milk. This is a little more than the total

milk amount produced in Italy, another great dairy-area.

markets more than half of the dairy

products outside the Nordic Region.

At the other end, we find one of the

smallest a yet the largest and only

dairy on the Faroe Islands, MBM

(Meginfelag Búnaðarmanna). MBM

has an annual milk intake of only 8

million kg, of which all are refined

into fresh dairy products and exclu-

The Nordic giants

The Danish-Swedish dairy giant, Arla

Foods is by far the dominate in the

Nordic region, as the 7.600 highly efficient

co-operative dairy farmers and

their company produces, manufactures

and markets more than 50% of

the milk available in the region. In

the Nordic area, Arla Foods is present

in Denmark and Sweden and in Finland

as Arla Ingman. In Denmark the

company has around 90% of the milk

market. In Sweden and Finland the

percentages are approx. 60% respectively

20%.

Valio in Finland is the regions second

largest dairy company having

around 80% of the Finnish milk and

the home market for dairy products.

The yearly milk intake amounts 1.8

billion kg delivered by the company’s

10.000 primarily smaller family-run

dairy farms.

The TINE dairy in Norway is the

absolute dominant company in the

country, as TINE possesses 98% of

the total milk production. The yearly

milk amount delivered by the company’s

15.000 dairy farmers is almost

1.5 billion kg.

dairies we find a handful of medium-sized

the milk from Tine, the Norwegian

dairy Synnøve Finden is an alternative

manufacturer and supplier of especially

cheeses on the home market.

Minor Nordic dairies

A large number of small dairies,

organized as private, co-operative or

one-owner farm dairies are scattered

all over the Nordic region. They

offer alternatives to the consumers,

as they manufacture a lot of special

dairy goods, often telling good stories

about the country life and the origin

of the foods.

These small dairies manufacture

different niche-products such as organic,

made from goat or sheep milk,

“handmade” or directly-from-thefarm

milk products. Due to the global

financial crisis and the consumers

more discount-oriented shopping,

many of these small dairies face hard

times, though. ■

Valio in Finland

Dairy production

The 1.800 million liters of raw milk

processed at the Valio Group dairies

is produced in Finland on approx.

10.000 family-owned dairy farms

that typically have 21 cows and 37

hectares of pasture.

The primary plants for Valio’s

world famous cheese brands Finlandia

and Valio Emmental we find in

Toholampi and Vantaa. Two other

large plants are situated in Mid-Finland

in Haapavesi and in Lapinlahti,

and they produce cheeses like Oltermanni

and Edam.

The two largest Valio plants are Riihimäki,

just north of Helsinki and

newly built Seinäjoki in Mid-Finland,

and they totals a milk intake of 620

million kg, which is one-third of all

Valio milk. The employees at these two

dairies exceed 700 and the production

is milk, cream, fermented milk, yoghurt,

butter, powders, cottage cheese

Valio Ltd is by far the largest dairy in Finland, as the milk volume

of the company exceeds 80% of the total 2,300 million liters of

milk produced annually in Finland. Valio is the market leader in

all key dairy product groups in Finland and a world class pioneer

as developer of functional foods. The company has a net turnover

at 1.8 billion Euros and has an average staff of 4.400 employees.

roots back to year 1881, and thus

the co-operative company can celebrate

its 130 anniversary next year.

The present 15.000 owners run dairy

farms that typically average 20 milking

cows, which total the annual milk

volume of 1.457 million liters of milk,

delivered to Tine last year.

Today Tine BA is present all over

Arla Foods in Denmark & Sweden

Arla Foods’ CEO,

Peder Tuborgh.

Dairy Production

Arla Foods’ yearly milk intake in

Denmark is 4.2 billion kg and in Sweden

1.9 billion kg. The leading international

Danish-Swedish company is

owned by 3.800 milk farmers in Denmark

and 3.800 in Sweden. The Danish

milk farms have in average 125

milking cows, and in Sweden the average

is half this number.

In Denmark Arla runs approx. 26

processing plants situated all over

the country. In Sweden the number

is 15 dairies, located in the southern

part of the country. Among the largest

plants we find the relatively newly

built Danish cheese factory in Taulov

(producing 27.500 tons a year)

and the Swedish milk powder plant

in Vimmerby (yearly milk intake 380

million kg).

After the Danish-Swedish dairy

merger in 2000, Arla Foods tried to

create a single culture in the company.

But by now the company is trying

to highlight the strengths of each

country and the differences between

Denmark and Sweden in terms of the

company’s history, product range and

culture.

Arla Foods is the fifth largest dairy in Europe. The company

is owned by 7.600 Swedish and Danish milk farmers. Arla

Foods has a global milk amount of 8.7 billion kg. In Denmark

and Sweden the annual milk production is based on 4.2 billion

kg respectively 1.9 billion kg. The remaining milk amount

of 2.6 billion kg (out of the total 8.7 billion) relates to Arlas

subsidiaries in UK, Holland and Finland.

Arla Lurpak® is the brand for butter throughout the world.

(Photo: Arla Foods).

Brands

Arla has some of the world’s bestknown

dairy brands: Arla ® , Castello ® ,

and Lurpak ® (The Lupak brand

though, is owned by all Danish dairies).

The three strategic brands are

use as: Lurpak ® for butter throughout

the world, Castello ® for specialty

cheeses, and Arla ® which covers the

company and many other brands, including

e.g. Apetina ® , Ko ® , Buko ®

and Kærgården ® .

Arla Foods priorities the areas

of health, taste and organic products,

and actually the company is the

world’s largest supplier of organic

dairy products, and the Harmonie ®

range includes almost 100 different

organic products!

Another focus area is developing

powdered whey proteins, and Arla is

a world leader within these special

ingredients. Last year Arla opened a

state-of-the-art new ingredient application

centre, where customers are

invited to co-operate.

Arla Foods worldwide

The Danish-Swedish dairy giant has

production in 13 countries and sales

offices in further 20. Arla’s core markets

are Sweden, Denmark, Finland,

the UK, Germany, the Netherlands

and Poland. In all mentioned countries

Arla runs production plants - except

in Germany. Germany however

is one of the dairy’s largest export

markets.

Turnover and employees

In 2009 Arla Foods had a global net

turnover at 46.2 billon DKK of which

20% was in Sweden and 19% in Denmark.

Of the remaining 2009 turnover

the Arla UK accounted for 26%.

Other primary markets are Holland,

Germany, Finland, USA, the Middle

East and Asia.

Arla Foods net turnover by product

is in average: Fresh dairy products

44%, cheese 25%, butter and spread

13%, powders 12% and 6% within

other products.

Globally, Arla Foods has 16.200

New Advanced Analytical Systems for the Scandinavian Dairy Industry

Bruker Optics Scandinavia

By Troels Aamann,

Dairy Technician

and Account

Manager, Bruker

Optics Scandinavia

Multipurpose Analyzer

Bruker Optics offers a range of the

most advanced analyzing equipment

and systems, and to the Scandinavian

dairy sector we especially recommend

the MPA FT-NIR analyzer.

With the Multi Purpose FT-NIR

Analyzer: MPA, dairies have a complete

solution at hand. The modular

and compact instrument is easy

to operate, and if wishes for new applications

arise, extra sampling tool

can be added. The robustness of the

instrument allows it to be used in the

laboratory and at the factory floor.

All optical components installed in

the MPA are permanently monitored

by the online diagnostic system,

PerformanceGuard, which makes

sure that the spectrometer operates

correctly. A status light on the control

panel and within the OPUS software

informs the user of the current instrument

status. Whenever a component

is out of specification, the user is

notified immediately.

The more complex modern foods become

the more advanced analyzing systems

the dairy and food industry require.

Bruker Optics’ Multi Purpose Analyzer,

MPA FT-NIR offers various measurements

options, and is an ideal tool for

sophisticated method developments.

Recently the US based analyzing expert Bruker established

the subsidiary Bruker Optics Scandinavia, headquartered in

Stockholm and operating throughout the region to serve the

Nordic meat and dairy sectors, one of the most important food

clusters in the world.

A set of starter calibrations is available

for an efficient implementation

of the Bruker Optics spectrometers

into the dairy quality control routines.

Milk and dairy products

FT-NIR spectroscopy is fast and accurate

for quality control of milk and

dairy products. Bruker Optics offers

solutions for the analysis of solid,

semi-solid and liquid samples in the

laboratory as well as in the process.

The analyzers ensure control of the

traditional quality parameters such

as fat, protein and dry matter as well

as more complex analyses for contents

of enzymes, special proteins

and protein bindings.

Avoid food scandals

Modern foods are very complex, and

each product contains a wide range

of different ingredients, not least various

types of convenience and fast

foods. The more complex the products

become the more advanced analyzing

systems is required. Also

food tampering should be avoided.

Just remember the Chinese Melamin

scandal where several thousands

of children became deadly sick after

drinking milk poisoned with Melamin.

If you add Melamin to milk, the

content of the otherwise valuable

milk proteins will falsely and dangerously

show higher.

Bruker Corporation

The Bruker Corporation was founded

50 years ago. Right from the beginning

Bruker has been driven by one

single idea: To provide the best technological

solution for each analytical

task. Today, more than 4,000 employees

Dramatic Time

and Cost Savings

TINE BA, Norway’s largest producer,

distributor and exporter of dairy

products, has recently integrated a

new Sealed Air packaging solution at

its Elnesvågen plant. This has led to

spectacular results in terms of packaging

efficiency for the 6,000 tons

of the famous Jarlsberg cheese produced

at the plant each year. TINE

Elnesvågen replaced one of its existing

two Cryovac ® packaging lines

with the new Cryovac ® L65 bag loader

and VS96DC packaging machine with

controlled vacuum. The new line has

almost tripled capacity, from three to

eight cheeses per minute. This meant

that they could reduce the number of

shifts from two to one, thus ensuring

major time and cost savings.

and trusted Cryovac ® NS40 bag

loader and vacuum machine and a

ST12 shrink unit. The new solution

offers a total capacity of 11-12 cheeses

per minute, compared with six previously.

The large 10 kg wheels of premium-quality

Jarlsberg have been

packaged in specially commissioned

Cryovac ® shrink bags since 1999 and

TINE has been impressed with the

bags’ ability to keep the cheese fresh

for many months.

Distinctive branding

A huge advantage of the Cryovac

shrink bags is that the cheese no

longer needs to be waxed - a feature

the processors cutting up the cheese

wheel had requested. It is however

important to keep the distinctive

bright Jarlsberg logo that was previously

embedded in the waxing. The

solution: coating the wheel with several

layers of plastic, with a paper

logo sandwiched in between. When

the Cryovac shrink bag is removed

and the wheel cut into up to 60 small

units, the Jarlsberg logo is still clearly

visible, a huge marketing plus.

Time-honoured traditions

Jarlsberg is named after the county

where an earlier version of the cheese

was made at the beginning of the

19th century. Its present incarnation

is due to research by a team from the

Agricultural University of Norway,

back in 1956, on how to make a soft,

medium-fat cheese with holes. This

white cheese is loved the world over

- and not just for its holey appearance.

Top-quality milk goes into a secret

recipe to create a unique, sweet,

slightly nutty-flavoured cheese, which

is matured for months and turned by

hand.

TINE Elnesvågen, situated near

the town of Molde in western Norway,

is one of the bigger plants in the

TINE group, with 70 employees and

an annual turnover in 2009 of about

350 million NOK. The plant is specialized

Sustainable Solutions

for Tomorrow’s Generations

By Svend Bøjgaard,

Senior Process

Engineer,

Anhydro A/S

The success of many sustainable solutions

depends on the product and

the required capacity. Thus the potential

savings of water, energy and

chemicals varies from case to case.

In general, however, savings between

20 and 30% can be expected, making

a particularly positive impact on

energy-intensive milk-based powder

production. In special cases savings

can be as much as 50% and on some

of our current projects, total annual

energy, water and chemical savings

will exceed 1 million Euros.

While investment payback times

are typically short, ranging from six

months to three years, some solutions

may require a longer-term investment

horizon of up to five years.

Cross-process savings

Some of the solutions are based on

what Anhydro calls cross-process energy,

water and chemical savings. An

example of this is using energy recovered

from the evaporator at the CIP

or dryer plants.

As a result, Anhydro’s approach

to sustainability is not limited to

evaporation and drying processes.

It also involves all related processes

and utility connections as potential

sources of improved sustainability.

Comprehensive coverage

Today, Anhydro offers a range of fully

engineered sustainable solutions in

connection with:

• Pre-concentration on membrane

plants (RO, NF and UF)

Over the last three to four years, Anhydro has been

focusing on developing sustainable solutions for tomorrow’s

generations. Encompassing a number of sustainable

solutions including pre-heating up-streams to the evaporator,

evaporation processes and drying processes, this programme

was introduced at the ANUGA fair in Cologne in March 2009.

• All CIP plants in the factory

• Pre-heat treatment for evaporators

and dryers

• Evaporators

• Dehumidification in connection

with drying air

• Pre-heat treatment of drying air

• Final heat treatment of drying air

• Surplus water and energy for use in

other parts of the processing plant

• Energy and water recovery for infant

formula mixing and pre heat

treatment processes etc.

In addition, Anhydro is working on

reducing emissions such as powder

product waste from the dryer exhaust,

including process recycling of as

much recovered product as possible.

Enhanced sustainability

plants

In addition to these process sustainability

improvements, Anhydro is also

developing a number of new processing

lines requiring a lower total less

energy consumption with corre-

spondingly lower CO2 emission per

kg of finished product. Some of these

new processing lines will even require

a lower capital investment, thus making

them additionally attractive.

Lower water and chemical consumption

will also reduce wastewater

load, thus further adding to savings

potential.

Increased uptime, reduced

costs

One of the new sustainable plant solutions

is the new permeate concentration

process (evaporation), which

has been installed on a project in

Argentina. The new plant has increased

processing time (up-time) on

the evaporator by more than 1.000

hours/year while energy, water and

CIP chemicals costs have been reduced

by about 30%, leading to spinoff

savings on wastewater treatment.

Tomorrow’s generations

Sustainable solutions for tomorrow’s

generations not only focus on general

savings on all our processing plants.

They also reflect Anhydro’s commitment

as one of the main suppliers

of infant formula production plants

to limit consumption of raw materials

and emissions in order to secure a

sustainable future for the infants and

children who consume the products

made on our plants.

Our first step was new, sustainable

processing plants. Our next is to

develop add-on solutions for existing

plants, enabling these to be upgraded

to meet tomorrow’s requirements

and standards. ■

Tailored milk tankers

VM Tarm design and construct total

transportation solutions to the

customers need. The milk tanks are

made of high quality non-corrosive

stainless steel, and constructed

in specific volumes after customers’

wishes. The shape of the tank is

typically circular or elliptical/heart

formed for optimum stability during

transportation. Manlids are constructed

and placed either on top or

side of the tank for optimized working

conditions and CIP-cleaning. All

food-tanks are constructed according

to present EU-regulatives.

The stainless steel chassis frame is

built to carry the specific tank, and as

high engineer performance lie behind

our solutions, the milk tankers are

suitable for even rough road conditions.

The chassis can be constructed

the milk collection.

For the time being we are testing

an easy operational milk collecting

system based on the SMS system

for a specific customer. This system

includes all prescriptions regarding

monitoring time and place of milk

collection, samples for the farmer and

the dairy, measurements of the milk

volume and the milk fat and protein

content. Finally and by SMS, the

driver sends the milk data receipts to

both farmer and dairy.

Recently, we have also designed a

Weighing and Labeling

At Nordic

Cheese Dairies

Bent Nygaard Elektronik A/S was founded

by Bent Nygaard and celebrates its 30th

anniversary this year.

By Bent Nygaard, CEO, Bent Nygaard Elektronik A/S

Years of collaboration

The company has been supplying weighing machines to

the food industry since 1980. Much of this equipment has

been supplied to Danish cheese dairies.

Collaboration with Danish dairies has been very important

to the business, as the dairy trade’s many customer

requirements have helped to shape and develop our product

range into what it is today.

The first computer-based systems for weighing cheese

were delivered to Skødstrup and Nr. Vium dairies, where

the new technology brought major savings by means of

automatically generated weighing lists, printouts of selfadhesive

weighing labels, computer monitors with orderhandling

programs, etc.

Although the systems from those days are now pure

nostalgia, and hopelessly out of date today, back then

they were the start of many years of collaboration with the

dairy trade.

Many deliveries followed on in the intervening years.

Many production sites have been closed down and some

have become very large.

The weighing systems that used to be so simple have

now been replaced by large, complex, turnkey solutions,

several with extensive IT superstructures, which are becoming

an increasingly dominant aspect.

Complete weighing lines

The company produces its own dispensing label printers,

label dispensers, check-weighers, weighing lines for

weighing and weight labeling, weighing terminals, interface

units, etc.

All products are specially manufactured for use in the

food industry, corrosion resistant and with high capacity.

Particularly notable is our latest generation of dispensing

label printers, which is the only Danish-produced label

printer on the market capable of handling up to 70 labels

per minute with variable information and a resolution of

300 DPI.

The complete weighing lines are usually custom built to

suit an array of customer requirements. Weight labels on

the top, side, base, the end of the pack, around the base

and end of the pack, and furthermore application of various

additional labels, etc.

The photograph shows an example of a weighing line

designed for weighing packaged cheese.

IT superstructure

The products always have an IT superstructure aspect of

varying degrees of complexity. At the very least, all incorporate

graphic label design and an order-handling program.

All systems have IP connection to central PCs or are

supplied with local weighing terminals.

All requests for data exchange, databases, etc., are accommodated

using local SQL databases.

Dairy and food industry

The company sells its production to all branches of the

food industry. The fishing industry is particularly noteworthy,

where our products are often used for labeling finished

products in onshore factories as well as on trawlers.

Some products are sold to Danish companies which incorporate

our products into their own turnkey solutions

for worldwide export.

We have machines in installations from the far north of

Norway to South Africa, from the Ukraine in the east to

Belize in the west. ■

Tetra Pak

DfE: Design for Environment

Modern dairies want to combine

maximum production efficiency with

minimum environmental impact.

Tetra Pak focuses on environmentally

efficient production solutions, in order

to support customer needs. “Design

for Environment” (DfE) is the

practice of integrating environmental

aspects into product design and development.

DfE is applied in the design of

components and modules - as well as

complete production lines and plants,

to minimise product losses and the

use of water, energy and detergent.

DfE also ensures that our equipment

and production units do not contain

or use any hazardous matter, diminishing

the environmental impact of

decommissioning.

Tetra Centri AirTight Eco

Thus, for instance the innovations inside

the new Tetra Centri AirTight

Eco dairy separator boost operational

efficiency, save on costs, reduce environmental

impact and improve profits

for dairy producers. The world’s

most efficient separator drive, our

new gearless direct eDrive, doubles

the length of our customers’ intervals

between major services. And the

groundbreaking new eMotion system

reduces the energy consumption of

our customers’ overall separation system

by up to 35%. Reducing energy

consumption significantly shrinks

your CO2 footprint. And lower heat

Drives the Evolution

generation reduces the need for oil

and lubrication.

Tetra Therm Aseptic Visco

Another example is Tetra Pak’s newly

launched Tetra Therm Aseptic Visco

unit, for high viscous and particulate

products that cuts products losses by

up to 50%, boosts production flexibility,

and further maximizes food safety

thanks to an innovative new heat exchanger.

The Tetra Therm Aseptic

Visco high pressure unit is a continuous

food-processing unit that enables

efficient high-capacity UHT

treatment for high viscous soups and

sauces, tomato pastes, custard desserts,

fruit preparations, vegetable

purees and baby food products. The

capacity of this unit for high viscous

products can run up to 18,000 liters/

hour and higher.

The heart of the unit is equipped

with a high-pressure-rated coil tubular

heat exchanger, called Tetra Vertico,

that handles pressures up to 350

bar and enables higher in-pipe velocity

and lower system volumes - meaning

it takes fewer liters to fill up the

system, which translates into smaller

mix zones (product/water), shorter

change over times, faster start-up as

well as lower losses and less waste.

The hygienic design of the new

Tetra Therm Aseptic Visco unit maximizes

food safety with the fewest possible

welds and easy to clean surfaces.

Advanced automation ensures total

production control and full traceability,

while reducing downtime and the

risk of human error.

Tetra Pak

Tetra Pak continuously evaluates

novel technologies that may have an

impact on the way dairy products

are processed. In order for novel

technologies to be accepted by the

industry and consumers they must

offer substantial values in terms of

product quality or safety, operational

cost or environmental impact.

Operating in more than 190 markets

with over 21,600 employees,

Tetra Pak believes in responsible industry

leadership, creating profitable

growth in harmony with good corporate

citizenship and a sustainable approach

to business.

We work closely with our suppliers

and customers on preferred processing

and packaging solutions to provide

Drivers of the Dairy Industry

By Helle Rexen,

Communications

Consultant,

Chr. Hansen A/S

A key element in global ingredients

supplier Chr. Hansen’s strategy is to

continually enable customers to improve

their business with new concepts

adding value to the dairy products

and processes, but also reducing

contamination risk and optimizing

food safety.

We build long term strategic supplier

relationships with our customers

providing high added value

products and essential technical service.

Innovative solutions which add

health components or other valuable

ingredients to yoghurt or cheese

make the products more appealing to

the consumers. An equally important

option is to provide customers with

new products and tools to optimize

production processes by improving

the yield of fermented milk products

and/or reducing production costs.

Meeting market needs

The concepts all meet market needs

for increased profitability, consistency

and control, and are the results

of working partnerships with key customers

and strategic partners.

For instance we have developed a

new generation of coagulants offering

a number of major benefits like

higher cheese yield, mild flavors and

a longer shelf life under the name of

CHY-MAX ® M.

More of everything

“Compared to existing coagulants

CHY-MAX ® M offers more of everything

that is important for global

cheese producers. The explanation

is that the specificity of the enzyme

chymosins, e.g. CHY-

MAX ® , and 25 times better than the

microbial coagulant from the fungus

Rhizomucor miehei. At the same

time, CHY-MAX ® M is the most costeffective

choice among all coagulants

due to the reduced dosage and increased

yield”, explains David Stroo,

Marketing Director, Enzymes, Chr.

Hansen.

CHY-MAX ® M is suitable for all

cheese types, and has already proven

its excellent performance in continental,

pasta filata and cheddar

cheese types.

CHY-MAX ® M is now available for

testing in Europe except for France

and Denmark where approval is expected

in early 2010.

Converting whey

Another ground-breaking enzyme innovation

from the strategic alliance

between Chr. Hansen and Novozymes

saw daylight in 2009. LactoYIELD

is the name of the enzyme solution

that can convert a cheap by-product,

the whey, into dry matter to be used

in cheese production.

At this moment, LactoYIELD is

developed for use in pizza cheese production.

But in a long-term perspective,

the value-adding conversion

method opens up

prospects for new

applications.

Cost-reducing cultures

Within yoghurt cultures, Chr. Hansen

recently launched a new range of

value-adding and cost-reducing

YoFlex ® cultures. The cultures meet

global health

trends and localrequirements

for taste

and texture.

The unique

culture strains

provide mild

and tasty yoghurt allowing the producer

to decrease the use of sugar.

Successful products

“Our product development chain is

based on smooth, cross-functional

New: The KEOFITT ©

Aseptic Sampling Bag

By Henrik Salomon, Managing Director, KEOFITT A/S

Don’t jeopardize sampling

Does it make any sense to put so much

emphasis on lab tests for quality control,

HACCP and traceability, if the

sample used is not representative in

the first place? No! It would be like using

inexpensive diesel fuel for an expensive

jet engine. Sampling, too, is a

chain of interdependent - and potentially

weak - links that need our utmost

attention.

“The proper use of sanitary and sterile

sampling equipment is the precondition

for true sample testing”. This

general guide-line and statement (often

referred to in ISO standards etc.)

is not operational at all. We need to

be more specific and break the sampling

chain down into links. You might

say that identifying the location of the

sampling points is Link no. 1. Link no.

2 would be selecting the appropriate

and proven sampling equipment. No. 3

is the physical installation of the sampling

device while no. 4 is the maintenance

of the sampling equipment.

primary links in our sampling chain.

Poor sampling and, consequently, false

conclusions can often be derived from

link no. 2, 3, and 4.

All the way

Identification of these first weak links

ing. The final link is the quality control

of the quality control, i.e. the capacity

to not only focus on testing procedures,

but constantly question the sampling

reduce wastewater COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) by 85%,

realising a payback time of just 2 years.

The answer was the APV Lean-

Creme Process combined with a

Reverse Osmosis plant to treat the

excess UF-Permeate and obtain water

clean enough for use as flushing water

during CIP and for safe disposal.

Customisable for low-fat

dairy products

The APV LeanCreme Process is

based on the APV Shear Agglomerator.

This is a groundbreaking technology

employing simultaneous heat

denaturation of the protein and controlled

high shear to form micro protein

particles with a customised particle

size distribution. This synergy

between heat and shear brings a new

functional dimension to whey protein

concentrates, resulting in Lean-

Creme. LeanCreme is ideal as a

starting ingredient for a wide range of

innovative products such as low-fat

cheeses, fermented milk products, ice

products.

MS Iceland Dairies quickly saw

a match between the APV Lean-

Creme Process and their own requirements

and the new plant started

production in June, 2007. The initial

result was a significant increase in

cheese yield as well as an 85% reduction

in the chemical oxygen demand

in the wastewater. The dairy soon realised

that the plant would pay for itself

in just 2 years.

Higher flexibility, higher

yield

Today MS Iceland Dairies in Akureyri

uses LeanCreme for many different

products. Production of Gouda

cheeses containing LeanCreme has

experienced an 8% increase in cheese

yield, a significant contribution to the

bottom line. LeanCreme has also

Going Green

Reuse of Water with the BacTerminator ®

By Freddie D.

Lauridsen, Area

Sales Manager,

DSS Silkeborg AS

Reuse of water

Reuse of water is an intelligent way to

save water and reduce cost. The general

aim of the dairy industry is to

minimize the overall water consumption

and effluent discharged into the

sewer system, thereby reducing the

environmental impact.

The constantly increasing water

prices and effluent charges have

moved the focal point from end-ofpipe

treatment to prevention of pollution.

To stay competitive it is therefore

essential to find sustainable

solutions that enable the industry to

reuse as much water as possible.

The BacTerminator ® offers this opportunity

as it eliminates all microorganisms,

both bacteria, yeast and

mould from dairy process water, allowing

it to be reused for many different

applications, e.g.:

• Improvement of tap water used in

production

• In the “after-warming” process of

manufacturing yellow and cottage

cheeses

• Reuse of CIP water

• Continuous disinfection of ice water

COWI is a leading Northern European consulting group. We provide state-of-the-art services

within the fields of engineering, environmental science and economics with due consideration

for the environment and society. COWI is a leader within its fields because COWI’s 6,000

Senior Project

COWI

Handling of dairy

wastewater

Formerly dairies used to produce

nearly all kinds of milk products,

which is quite different from today

where dairies are much more specialized

and produce only one kind

of product, e.g. yellow cheese, blue

cheese or butter. As dairies are getting

bigger and bigger, the correct

and most optimal way of handling

wastewater attracts more and more

attention.

Some dairies discharge their wastewater

to a municipal wastewater

treatment plant, WWTP, and pay for

the treatment. However, an increasing

number of dairies in Denmark

have found that it is more advantageous

to establish their own treatment

plants to treat the wastewater

from their dairies themselves.

COWI has been involved in many

wastewater treatment projects at dair-

ies in Denmark and knows from experience

that it is not difficult to handle

wastewater from dairies. There

are two reasons for the conclusion

above. One is that the temperature of

the wastewater is at least 25°C, which

benefits the biological processes. Another

is that the composition of the

wastewater facilitates the nitrogen

and phosphorous removal efficiently.

Simple wastewater

treatment

The design of WWTPs at dairies can

be based on the activated sludge

process and be kept simple. Nor-

36 MÆLKERITIDENDE 2010 NR. 8


mally, a WWTP includes a balance/

emergency tank, a process tank for

the biological treatment and a clarifier

to separate the cleaned wastewater

from the activated sludge. The

balance/emergency tank is essential

for the stable operation of a treatment

plant, as the balance/emergency

tank reduces load variations

in the biological tanks. The balance/

emergency tank is also able to handle

milk spills to avoid that such spills

increase the load at the treatment

plant significantly. 1 m 3 milk may

give a load of some 3,000 PE (Person

Equivalent corresponding to the pollution

from 3,000 persons/day) at a

treatment plant. A spill normally uses

up all the oxygen and reduces the efficiency

of the treatment plant. However,

the spill problem can be handled

effectively at the dairy if more

attention is paid to the subject in dayto-day

operations.

Modern dairies are operated using

ble Technology). BAT technologies

focus on good housekeeping, water

consumption, energy consumption,

use of chemicals etc. The efficiency of

BAT technologies is evaluated by using

key figures where consumption is

related to production, e.g. kWh/ton

product or m 3 water/ton milk produced.

Obvious benefits

Of course industrial WWTPs encounter

problems from time to time. The

most common problem is growth of

filamentous bacteria in the activated

sludge. These bacteria make it difficult

to separate the treated wastewater

from the activated sludge.

This kind of problem requires special

knowledge about bacteria and

experience with waste water treatment

in order to reduce the problems

from bacteria. COWI has solved these

problems in many projects for different

clients through its experience and

expertise.

The benefits of private treatment

plants at dairies are obvious:

• The environmental impact from a

treatment plant at a dairy is much

less than that from a public treatment

plant of the same size

• The dairy will save money if wastewater

is treated at its own treatment

plant

• The dairy will have a stable price

for treating wastewater at its own

treatment plant

• The dairy will be able to own and

operate the treatment plant independently

without any interference.

Even if there might be difficulties obtaining

permissions to build a private

treatment plant it is worthwhile

to give it a try. Although a treatment

plant requires investments and operation

costs, there will be significant

savings for the dairy in most cases.

And in addition, the environment will

benefit from such a project. ■

The customers are looking for one

supplier that is able to offer them

overall solutions - solutions that lead

to a significant higher productivity

When we start co-operating with a

customer we do not only see him as

a customer - but as a strategic partner.

This kind of co-operation is important

in order for us to be able to

develop present and future projects.

”With a close dialog and control

eral successful standard-concepts. An

example is the newly developed “Bila

Milk Packer” which is a combined robot

cell for fast and efficient packing

of milk cartons in either plastic boxes

or containers. This cell can handle up

to 9.600 milk cartons per hour.

Masterplan as a tool

In order to find the best solution for

our customers we use Masterplan as

a tool. Based on the questions in the

Masterplan, the manufacturing process

from beginning to end is examined

and the various issues are noted.

This way we gain insight into ways of

increasing the efficiency through automation

and ways of protecting employees

from monotonous work. Already

after the first visit, we are able

to draw up the budget for potential

suggestions for solutions based on

the Masterplan.

Constant developement

To follow the tendencies within the

dairy sector and at the same time be

at the forefront of the development,

we keep a constant focus on the development

of new automation solutions.

We use almost 10.000 hours

every year for development. ”With

our huge focus on development, our

employees are perfected and at the

same time, we are able to act very

quickly to changes in the market and

in the needs of the customers”, says

Chief of Development, Frank Gade.

Automation at smaller

companies

At the cooperative Them Dairy in

Denmark, the question was not

whether to get a robot cell, but how

quickly they could get it. With an increased

demand from the market, the

need for enlargement of the capacity

arose at the dairy. The solution was

at the same time going to release the

employees of the daily heavy and monotonous

work. A manual job that included

lifting and carrying cheeses

from a conveyor belt and into plastic

boxes placed on pallets, which also

had to be moved on a regular basis.

”Due to increasing market demands

we had the need for transferring employees

to other job functions within

the dairy. We never meant to cut

down when getting the robot cell. We

have good stable employees, which

we want to offer interesting jobs,

and that’s why installation of the robot

plant was evident”, says Them’s

Dairy Manager, Svend Andersen.

Bila A/S was chosen as the supplier

for this project, as the dairy’s board

of directors had previous and very

good experiences with Bila A/S’s robot

plants. Due to this confidence and

sense of security regarding our expertise

and know-how, Bila A/S became

the supplier.

packed in shrink film. Thereafter the

cheeses are forwarded on the conveyor

belt to the robot that packs the

products into plastic boxes.

The tools of the robot are constructed

for gentle handling of the

cheeses, so no holes are made in the

shrink film or in the paraffin surface.

The tool is at the same time used to

palletize the plastic boxes after they

have been filled.

The amount of money used for the

palletizing plant will be gained over a

period of only three years, and at the

same time Them Dairy is saving the

labour costs. ■

Aabybro udvider

Aabybro Mejeri er i gang med at opføre en ny frost- og lagerhal

på 500 kvadratmeter. Den nye bygning skal også

huse en udvidelse af mejeriets udviklingsafdeling, så der

bliver bedre plads til flere maskiner til brug i forsøg og prøveproduktioner.

- Så vi får bedre muligheder for at eksperimentere

med nye produkter, fortæller mejeriets ejer N.H.

Lindhardt til Nordjyske.

Baggrunden for udvidelsen er en øget

tilgang af kunder både i Danmark og

uden for landets grænser.

Produktionen og varianterne af mejeriets

kendte Ryå Is og islagkagerne stiger.

Desuden fremstilles mere smør med

bl.a. krydderier til andre industrier, og

den energitætte is til sygehuspatienter

er ligeledes en succes, som nu udvides

med flere varianter. (Arkivfoto).

Verdenspremiere på Thises

”Vesterhavsyoghurt”

Thise Mejeri havde verdenspremiere på

sin helt nye ”Vesterhavsyoghurt” den 16.

april på Købmandsgården i Fjaltring, hvor

mejeriet serverede ”Vesterhavsyoghurt”

ad libitum

sammen med smagsprøver af

”Vesterhavsosten”.

Fjaltring Købmandsgård er næsten

nabo til Vesterhavet og ligger

tæt på Thises Bovbjerglager, hvor

Vesterhavsostene lagres. Fjaltring

har været en af de helst store sælgere

af Thises ost, og netop derfor var

Købmandsgården valgt til at være premierestedet

- forud for lanceringen af ”Vesterhavsyoghurten”

i resten af landet her i uge 16.

”Vesterhavsyoghurten” er baseret på mælk fra økologiske

Thise leverandører i Vestjylland. Yoghurten er tilsat

økologisk hyben og havtorn, der giver den en frisk syrlig

smag - og samtidig er fyldt med antioxidanter og vitaminer.

(Foto: Thise Mejeri).

Ups, det var en græker!

Lindahls ”Tyrkiske Yoghurt” bliver solgt med et emballagebillede

af en ”tyrkisk” mand med et stort overskæg og klædt

i nationaldragt. Men manden er græker, og han optræder

helt ufrivilligt på det svenske mejeris yoghurtprodukt. Det

var en af mandens venner, bosiddende i Stockholm, som

genkendte mandens ansigt på mejeriemballagen. Den græske

model sagsøger nu det svenske mejeri og forklarer i sit

søgsmål, at han er endt ufrivilligt på produkterne, fordi han

kan lide at gå klædt i kostumer og nogle gange lader sig fotografere

af turister - men kun til privat brug. Grækerens

søgsmål er på 50 mio. svenske kr., skriver aftonbladet.se.

På Lindahls er de meget overraskede over sagen, da de har

købt billedet fra et billedagentur. Det svenske mejeri overgiver

nu sagen til virksomhedens advokat.

Lindahls Mejeri, som netop er blevet store på nicheproduktet

”Tyrkisk Yoghurt” i Sverige, ser i øvrigt på muligheden

for ekspansion i Norge og Finland

og annoncerer p.t. efter ledere til

ønskede datterselskaber i de to nabolande.

Målet er sat højt, da virksomheden

forventer en omsætning i

2012 på 100 mio. SEK i Finland og 50

mio. SEK i Norge. I 2009 havde Lindahls

en omsætning på 300 mio. SEK.

Svenskerne overtager Gram

Kapitalfonden Procuritas Capital Investors IV har opkøbt

Gram Equipment i Vojens, som dermed kommer på svenske

hænder, skriver Jydske Vestkysten. Sælger er det italienske

selskab Catelli Holding, som i 2001 overtog Gram

Equipment, der fremstiller iscremeanlæg. Salget ventes

ikke at få nogen betydning for fabrikkens 150 medarbejdere.

Mælkeprisen i Frankrig

Mælkeprisen i Frankrig skal stige 5-6% over de næste måneder,

mener landets landbrugsminister og mælkeproducenterne.

Men Frankrigs største mejerikoncern Lactalis vil

kun aftale en prisstigning for april måned, begrundet i at

mælkeprisen i Tyskland er 15% lavere end i Frankrig. Men

nu truer de ansvarlige politikere med, at en række offentlige

tilskud på 3,7 mia. kr. bliver trukket væk uden en aftale.

Lactalis har en årlig omsætning på næsten 65 mia. kr. og

er tredjestørst i verden. Den samlede indvejning er på 9,2

mia. kg mælk, og der er 32.000 ansatte.

Kort fortalt

Franske Lactalis har købt den spanske fødevarekoncern

Ebro Puleva’s mejerivirksomhed Puleva Food for 630 mio.

Euro. Puleva har 12 anlæg og 2.800 ansatte, og virksomheden

er især stærk inden for drikkemælk.

Med købet af Puleva bliver Lactalis den største mejerigruppe

i Spanien.

Glanbia bliver andelsmejeri

Det irske mejeriselskab Glanbia A/S vil sælge sine mejerianlæg

til leverandørernes andelsselskab. Mælkeproducenterne,

der i forvejen ejer mere end halvdelen af Glanbia, vil

med et 100% ejerskab få fuld kontrol over selskabets aktiviteter

i Irland. Det resterende aktieejede Glanbia vil fremover

i stedet satse på sin oste- og ingrediensvirksomhed i

USA og andre lande.

En eventuel handel skal både godkendes af leverandørerne

og af Glanbias aktionærer. Meddelelsen om forhandlingerne

kom samtidig med, at Glanbia offentliggjorde resultatet

for 2009, der viste et fald i overskuddet før skat på

19%.

MÆLKERITIDENDE 2010 47


Kort fortalt

Flot resultat hos Nordmilch

Tysklands største mejeriselskab, Nordmilch fik i 2009 et

overskud på godt 216 mio.kr. I løbet af 2009 har Nordmilch

reduceret antallet af anlæg fra 24 til 11 og antallet af ansatte

fra over 4.000 til 2.500. Sortimentet er desuden reduceret

fra 4.500 mærker til 1.500, skriver Landbrugsavisen. Nordmilch

har også indgået et samarbejde med nordtyske, Humana

Milchindustrie, og det kan føre til en fremtidig fusion.

Arla hæver leverandør prisen

Optur for den amerikanske dollar og det britiske pund samt

udsigt til et forbedret marked for mælkepulver gør, at Arla

Foods hæver afregningen til andelshaverne med 7,5 danske

øre fra 3. maj 2010. Arla-noteringen bliver dermed 216,8

øre/kg for konventionel mælk og 274,7 øre/kg for økologisk

mælk.

Arla ændrer

leveranceregler i Sverige

Arlas svenske leverandører har hidtil haft

en regel om, at de skulle levere mindst 80%

af deres mælk til Arla. Reglen kan imidlertid

ifølge EU’s konkurrenceregler være udtryk

for misbrug af en dominerende position

på markedet. Og det er nu fastslået af

det svenske Konkurrensverket, der derfor

vil give Arla en bødestraf på 750.000 kroner,

hvis ikke reglerne laves om.

Arla er i gang med at lave om på vedtægterne,

så alle medlemmer har ret til at levere

op til 50% af deres mælk til andre mejerier.

Fedtskat udskudt igen

Regeringen har endnu engang måttet udskyde fremsættelsen

af lovforslaget om en ny afgift på mættet fedt, den såkaldte

fedtskat. Det skriver Altinget. Regeringen blev dermed

ikke som planlagt klar med et lovforslag inden påske.

Fedtskatten afventer fortsat en godkendelse fra EU Kommissionen.

I Skatteministeriet håber

man, at de nye skatter kan

vedtages inden sommerferien.

Dermed vil skatten

være mindst et halvt år forsinket

i forhold til den oprindelige

plan i skattereformen.

Nestlé udvikler til familiehygge

Nestlé vil sikre sig en endnu højere vækst efter krisen ved at

udvikle nye produkter med fokus på det nære. Nestlés topchef

Paul Bulcke udtaler til dagbladet til Børsen. - Tiden er

til at slå mere på familieværdier og lykke. God kaffe, god is,

gode måltider bringer familien tættere sammen, og her er

der stor vækst at hente. Hvis forbrugerne bare bruger én

procent mere af deres husholdningsbudget på fødevarer,

er det alene 10% vækst til kategorien.

Nestlé investerer i år cirka 10,5 mia. kr. i forskning og udvikling

af nye produkter og varianter, som på et senere tidspunkt

skal sikre vækst i Nestlé. Koncernen satser også på

langsigtede trends som sundhed og ernæring. (Modelfoto

Colourbox).

Prishop for mælkepulver

Prisen på mælkepulver på det newzealandske mejeriselskab

Fonterras internetauktion for april måned

steg drastisk med 23,2%. Auktionen er en indikator

for prisniveauet på pulver på verdensplan.

Gennemsnitsprisen nåede op på 3.969 US dollars

pr. ton for sødmælkspulver, og det var 688 US dollars

mere end i marts. Prisen på skummetmælkspulver

steg med 25,5%.

Flotte tal hos UK mejerier

Arlas to store konkurrenter i England, Robert Wiseman Dairies

og Dairy Crest, forventer at komme ud af 2009/2010

med stærke regnskaber, oplyser selskaberne selv her kort

tid før deres regnskaber er klar.

Wiseman Dairies har øget salget af mælk med 11%, og mejerikoncernen

har desuden store forventninger til investeringerne

i et nyt mejerianlæg, Bridgewater. Hos Dairy Crest er

gælden reduceret med 65 mio. pund, og virksomhedens position

på markedet er meget bedre end for et år siden.

Det går også godt for Arla UK, der tegner sig for 26% af

Arlas samlede omsætning, og det er bl.a. i kraft af mærke-

48 MÆLKERITIDENDE 2010 NR. 8


varerne Lurpak, Cravendale og Anchor. Arlas udmelding

om et nyt mejeri med en kapacitet på 1 mia. kg har sendt

klare signaler til hele industrien om, at Arla Foods følger

vækst-strategien. Det oplyste chef for Arla i UK, Peter Lauritzen

i forbindelse med Arlas årsregnskab, der blev offentliggjort

for få uger siden.

Milko omorganiserer

Den svenske mejerikoncern Milko omorganiserer for at effektivisere

ledelsesstrukturen, skriver foodwire.se. Mejeriets

nye topchef Göran Henriksson ønsker med ændringen

at øge Milkos konkurrencekraft og komme tættere på forbrugerne.

Det indebærer bl.a., at ledelsesgruppen flytter til

hovedkontoret i Östersund, og at afdelingerne for kommunikation,

medlemmer, markedet og udvikling slås sammen

i én. Desuden overtager Göran Henriksson ledelsen af datterselskabet

Fjällbrynt AB, hvor den hidtidige direktør fratrådte

i februar.

Mælkekartonen taler til mobilen

Arla er gået sammen med Alexandra Instituttet og Teater

Katapult om at teste en ny kommunikationsteknologi,

der fungerer via forbrugerens mobiltelefon og 2D

stregkoder på bl.a. mælkekartonerne. Teknologien kan

sætte nye standarder for Arlas dialog med forbrugerne.

Den nye teknologi blev testet for første gang på Økodagen

den 18. april, hvor de interaktive fortællinger i ”Økofonen”,

blev aktiveret forskellige steder på Arlas besøgsgårde via

særlige 2D stregkoder.

Forbrugere, som ikke deltog på Økodagen, har mulighed

for at opleve lyttespillet på arla.dk. Efter den 18. april vil

Arla bruge Økofonen til skoleklasser. (Foto Arla Foods).
