In recent years, there has been a focus on production and processing of milk as well as other aspects of the agri-food industry. There are demands and goals for e.g. carbon footprint, energy usage and animal welfare. The industry has already been through a professionalisation and structural development changes that continuously set all parts of the value chain under pressure with a demand for optimisation and innovation.
The Danish model is well recognised for optimising all parts of the value chain and this will be our focus on this tour. We will start with the end product and hereafter dig deeper into where it all starts by looking at the research being done to develop our future. We will end the day at a dairy farm where you will see and hear more about what is demanded from the farmer now and in the future.
