Tetra Pak has released a new edition of its Dairy Processing Handbook, an industry reference book providing guidance on the key operational steps of dairy processing. Since its launch in the early 80s,the publication has been used by academics and technical engineers in more than 100 countries. It has now been revised, based on the 2003 version, to include new content on milk and whey powder; whey processing; concentrated yoghurt, as well as updates on commercial sterility regulations.
“When I was first introduced to the handbook, I was impressed by how clear and straightforward the text and illustrations were. It was easy to read and understand, even for colleagues without an extensive technical background. I expect the new version will offer the same great capacity to convey complex processes with simple, understandable explanations,” says Peter Bosch, R&D and engineering director at Lactalis Brazil.
Academic circles have adopted the manual as required reading. Phillip S Tong, professor of Dairy Foods within the Dairy Science faculty at the California Polytechnic State University (San Luis Obispo) comments, “The Dairy Processing Handbook is a great reference for any student or professional interested in gaining a broad understanding of the science and technology of dairy foods processing. I use it with university students from all levels to provide a solid practical foundation in the industry basics.”
With 482 pages and more than 600 illustrations, the handbook can be ordered on www.dairyprocessinghandbook.com. A free digital version will be available from September 2015 onwards.
The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.
A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has
demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.
As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.
The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.
Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
