U.S. Dairy Delivers Sustainable Ingredient Solutions + Global Product Inspirations

Arlington, VA, July 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The versatility and functionality of U.S. dairy ingredients will be on display, virtually, at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) annual expo, being held next week. At a pre-IFT special access webinar held July 7, the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC)a??s leadership shed light on the U.S. dairy industrya??s ambitious sustainability goals for 2050, announced upcoming scientific sessions and previewed exciting technical and innovation resources for IFT attendees to learn how U.S. Dairy delivers on consumer demand for global taste adventures, balanced nutrition and sustainable food production.Education around the industrya??s sustainability efforts is a key component of USDECa??s virtual IFT presence this year, as it aims to shine a light on the aggressive new environmental stewardship goals set this spring which include becoming carbon neutral or better by 2050 in addition to optimizing water usage and improving water quality. These goals build on a decades-long commitment to producing nutritious dairy foods that can feed a growing global population in the most economically viable and socially responsible way. They align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically those focused on food security, human health and responsible stewardship of natural resources, including animals.a??We want to be the source of choice when you think about a partner who can not only help nourish people, but also the planet,a?? said Krysta Harden, Executive Vice President of Global Environmental Strategy for Dairy Management Inc. and Interim Chief Operating Officer at USDEC, during the webinar. a??Collectively passing new and aggressive goals is just one way U.S. Dairy can prove we are a global leader in this area.a??Consumers and manufacturers alike might be surprised to learn that of all greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, the dairy industry a?? from feed production to post-consumer waste a?? currently contributes only 2%. USDEC developed a short quiz to encourage people to test their sustainability knowledge and learn other fun facts.a??Innovation continues despite these challenging times and U.S. Dairy resources and expertise can support successful product development,a?? said Vikki Nicholson-West, Senior Vice President a?? Global Ingredient Marketing at USDEC. a??Wea??re thrilled to have Krystaa??s talents and sustainability focus on board as our new interim COO, guiding our extensive network of staff and representatives around the world.a??
