The Society of Dairy Technology's annual dinner coincides with the International Cheese Awards. The Society awarded Project Eden student Peter Clarke the award for best project and his prize including a copy of Tetra Pak's Dairy Processing Handbook - presented by Keith Goodby, Cluster Category Leader – Dairy.
A mature student at Reaseheath College, Peter was sponsored by employer Dairy Crest. Having left school after GCSEs he said the course had given him increased confidence to tackle fresh challenges, along with a valuable network of new contacts.
Copies of the Handbook were also presented to students that had made the greatest contribution to the SDT during 2015/16.
Family owned Mackie’s is one of Scotland’s best known vertically integrated food and farming brands. Apart from producing 11 million litres of ice cream per year from the farm’s dairy herd it generates more renewable energy than it uses and makes its own recyclable ice cream tubs.
The case for green production was part of the rationale for replacing older freezers with new generation Tetra Pak® S1500 A2 continuous models. The new freezers reduce ice cream mix waste during start-up, save energy during freezing and give better process control overall. Better control keeps the ice cream crystals smaller and improves texture. For more information contact Chris.Thomas@tetrapak.com
