Production of innovative dairy drinks based on co-products of cheese manufacturing


Current situation requiring improvements 

  • Whey, a by-product of cheese production, is not sufficiently exploited.
  • Small producers need to generate revenue from whey. However, collection is difficult as they are often isolated
  • Small producers cannot afford the installation of bottling lines needed to produce whey-based drinks.

Main activities in FAIRCHAIN

  • Use whey to develop valuable products, in particular healthy whey-based drinks.
  • Bring a zero-waste aspect to the distribution of fresh/room temperature liquid products.
