The U.S. dairy community continues to make investments for the future of food. Thanks to dairy farmers’ relentless use of careful management and adoption of innovative practices, milk is being produced in the United States in an especially efficient way that nourishes people but also helps protect our planet. One example of this, U.S. Dairy’s bold journey to greenhouse gas (GHG) neutrality, was showcased at the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) 21st World Congress of Food Science & Technology in Singapore early this month.

While the recent Earth Day celebration brings the health and wellbeing of our planet top of mind, today and every day, the U.S. dairy community is dedicated to feeding the world in a planet-friendly manner. Throughout the supply chain, from farmers to processors, U.S. Dairy is embracing practices that care for the environment and support sustainable food formulations.
To feature some of the many efforts our suppliers take to deliver the value in milk to global customers, the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) has unveiled the first video in a new series: U.S. Dairy: Sustainability at the Heart of Global Ingredient Solutions.
While sustainability continues be a major focus in 2019, it isn’t a new priority for U.S. farmers, processors and manufacturers. As a global leader in sustainability and social responsibility, the U.S. dairy industry has had a long-standing commitment to healthy people, a healthy planet and healthy communities.

Food and beverage companies are finding new and creative ways to reduce waste. Some are doing this in response to the sustainable eating trend, others to make a positive environmental impact, or a combination of both. No matter the reasoning, using food byproducts as raw materials is one way to reduce waste. Coproducts, like whey proteins derived from milk, can be used in a variety of applications for added benefits.
