Benfeng Sun (Technical Sales Manager) spoke on behalf of FrieslandCampina Ingredients about dairy protein opportunities in yogurt at the China Dairy Industry Association (CDIA) in Beijing.

About the conference
The annual meeting of the CDIA took place on August 11th in Beijing. It is the #1 forum in China for the dairy industry, where more than 200 delegates from Chinese and foreign dairy companies discuss developments and trends. The conference focused on R&D trends and safety control measures, including health benefits offered by ingredients and nutrition.

Our message
A trend for “Clean label” is established already in Europe and US. As Chinese consumers are increasingly aware and educated on food safety, this trend “clean label” is being picked up by the Chinese consumer.
Opportunities for the Chinese industry can be found in concepts of healthy and indulgent yogurts, e.g. by the use of milk proteins like calcium caseinate.
We also presented global trends in yogurt, successful European yogurt concepts and we informed the dairy industry about the regulatory aspects of using caseinates in yogurt
