Overview

Sustainability is a pressing issue in all types of manufacturing, and the dairy industry is no exception. Studies have shown that current dairy production methods have a large environmental impact, whilst regulatory, societal and consumer pressures are forcing the industry to quantify its carbon and water footprints, and to adopt more sustainable practices. It is clear that sustainability will be on the agenda for the foreseeable future.

Although it is expected that in the coming years there will be billions of new consumers creating new business opportunities for dairy companies, some crucial issues remain. It has been concluded that the current global food system is on an unsustainable track, which poses a threat to global food security. The dairy sector needs to be transformed in order to secure a long-term food supply for future generations.

Sustainable Dairy Production aims to provide the dairy and related industries with inspiration to find sustainable solutions for today and tomorrow. The book gives an overview of the main aspects of a sustainable dairy production chain. It then follows the approach a dairy company can apply to upgrade their degree of sustainability in terms of energy use, carbon footprint and water footprint. The book is richly illustrated with examples of real-life companies’ approaches
to the challenge of sustainability.

The book is aimed at everyone working with dairy production issues, whether from an industry or an academic perspective. Readers will particularly value the insights from the many dairy industry experts who make up the author team and the new production design concepts that are included in the book.
