Energy and cost optimization in the dairy industry

Energy prices are skyrocketing these years and most recently the invasion of Ukraine has caused a European energy crisis due to the curtailment of Russian natural gas. This presents a major challenges in a number of industries with high energy consumption. This also applies to the dairy industry, where natural gas is an important source of energy. Therefore, the industry is now busy preparing alternative energy sources and other types of production.

Danish Dairy & Food Industry (DDFI) covers the initiatives in the Nordic region's 3 largest dairy companies (Arla, Valio and Tine), which explains their situation and initiatives to optimize energy consumption and secure emergency plans if things go really wrong with the supply .

The Danish Minister of Food will also comment on the current challenge.

The energy crisis is generally helping to push the green transition, which continues at a high pace in all parts of dairy production. Therefore, DDFI also contains contributions from a number of suppliers who offer new products, technology and concepts that help to optimize costs in the following areas:

  • Automation
  • Digitization
  • Ingredients & cultures
  • Plant-based products
  • Water optimization
  • Packaging
