Book Description :

In many countries of the world, the dairy industry is one of the most important food sectors and it has, by and large, been very successful in providing safe products. Nevertheless, the dairy sector, like other food sectors, also has its challenges, as from farm to the point of consumption, dairy products can become contaminated with a broad range of microbial and chemical hazards. The sources of contamination are multiple and the pathways are complex. Contamination of milk can occur directly by dairy animals shedding pathogens into the milk, or indirectly by contamination of the milk during the milking process, collection and transportation. Infected animals or asymptomatic carriers can shed the organisms in the feces and contaminate the milk through the environment. Other sources of environmental contamination are water, pests, soil, feces, pets and contaminated feed. Infected farmers, not respecting hand hygiene, are also a potential source of contamination of milk. During milking, collection and transportation, milk can be subjected to further contamination by the equipment and/or be subjected to time–temperature abuse, creating optimum conditions for microbial growth. Hence, ensuring safety of milk and dairy products starts on the farm with animal health, quality of feed, a hygienic environment and, in general, good animal husbandry. Nevertheless, pasteurization of milk is necessary to kill any surviving organisms and reduce the risk of illness to an acceptable level. Provided that hygienic measures are taken to prevent any post-process contamination, milk and dairy products can be produced and consumed safely. The present chapter reviews risks and control measures all along the production chain.

It helps you classify dairy industry on the basis of its business attractiveness and investment potential which can prove to be a vital link in prudent business decision making. The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the dairy products sector along with the financial details of dairy products companies. It begins by a brief on global dairy sector and then proceeds to discuss the Indian scenario of dairy industry in detail. It discusses the present scenario, structure and classification of the industry while defining the scope of the report. The sector has moved away from large consumption of milk in unprocessed and fluid form to higher intake of processed dairy products. The known factors for such rising preference for processed dairy products include growing disposable incomes, urbanization, spiraling trend of modern retail and growing acceptability of processed products. The report analyzes the above mentioned factors in growth drivers section supported by graphical representation and forecasts of data points. Growing population of middle class households pose immense opportunities for a host of consumer industries; dairy being one of them. With higher incomes in their pockets and growing western influence on their taste buds, Indian middle class is well equipped to experiment with new products which will have a domino effect on the consumption of dairy products. Also, growing health consciousness among Indian population, low per capita consumption of various dairy products and rising food expenditure will provide ample opportunities for dairy players to seize. Further the report discusses various impediments faced by the dairy players while operating in the industry. The report in its entirety can prove to be an indispensible tool for assessing the market potential of dairy products in India. It analyzes the demand supply situation in the industry from different angles to enable better understanding of the topic. Demand for dairy products in India is captured by determining the demand for various dairy products as well as total exports. Similarly supply side is taken into account by assessing the production of milk in the country and population of milch animals, the production of various dairy products and lastly by scrutinizing the capital expenditure projects announced in the industry. Moving forward, the report analyzes the attractiveness of the sector by evaluating the status of porters 5 forces prevalent in the industry. Any sector is said to be most attractive when the 5 forces are at their weakest and the report explicates the forces methodically to simplify the analysis. It also lists various initiatives undertaken by the Indian government to assist dairy industry as a whole. Lastly to give a fair view of the competition in the industry, the report shares information about players operating in the dairy sector. It gives business profiles of key players like Amul, Parag Milk Foods Ltd, Kwality Ltd and Mother Dairy Fruit & Vegetable Ltd. The next segment provides complete financial details of dairy players in the country like address of registered office, director’s name and financial comparison covering balance sheet, profit & loss account and several financial ratios of the players. The report ends with a promising outlook of the sector. Indian dairy industry has been at the forefront with impressive growth rates and immense potential for an effervescent future abetted by rising demand for value added dairy products in the country. Fluid milk market in India has reached a saturation point and the growing acceptance of value added dairy products has brought winds of change for the industry. The Indian market has witnessed a spur in the demand of value added dairy products like cheese, yogurt, packaged milk and probiotic drinks which has invigorated the growth in overall dairy industry. Rising western influence on Indian food habits, rising concerns about quality of dairy products, health consciousness and spiraling disposable incomes of consumers have resulted in higher demand for value added dairy products in India. Gauging the high demand potential in dairy products industry, a host of international and domestic players have set their foot in the Indian dairy domain. The share of milk processed in total milk produced has shown a healthy rise in the last 3-4 years. We anticipate the quantity of milk processed to cross 107 million tonnes by 2017 from ~66 million tonnes in 2013. Also we expect Indian dairy market to touch INR 6971 billion levels by 2017.

Book Description :

There continues to be strong interest within the food industry in developing new products which offer functional health benefits to the consumer. The premium prices that can be charged make these added-value products lucrative for manufacturers, and they are also commercially popular. Dairy foods are central to this sector: they are good delivery systems for functional foods (yoghurts, milk drinks, spreads) and are also rich in compounds which can be extracted and used as functional ingredients in other food types. Milk and Dairy Products as Functional Foods draws together a wealth of information regarding the functional health benefits of milk and dairy products. It examines the physiological role and the claimed health effects of dairy constituents such as proteins, bioactive peptides, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), omega 3 fatty acids vitamin D and calcium. These constituents have been shown to be, for example, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, hypocholesterolemic, immune-modulating and antimicrobial. This book examines the evidence for these claims, and investigates practical approaches for utilising these attributes. The book is aimed at dairy scientists and technologists in industry and academia, general food scientists and technologists, microbiologists and nutritionists together with all those involved in the formulation and production of functional food products.
