Erasmus Project, 2022 - 2026
Continuous globalisation of markets, accelerating technological development, demographic shifts, changing eating patterns, and the urgent need for a green transformation of our society are creating immense challenges and opening new opportunities across sectors in Europe. This is also very much the case for the Dairy sector. Milk is a complete food offering a balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and all vitamins and minerals required to sustain life. Dairy products derived from milk provide a cost-effective, readily available source of high-quality protein, calcium and vitamins A and D in the diet. It is an important source of nutrition in both developed and developing countries, yet many people fail to reach the recommended daily intake.
The Dairy sector is at a pivotal point in its development with several pressing challenges and various growth opportunities. The Excellence in Dairy learning proposal has been carefully designed to address these.
