Raw milk new national standard publicly solicited opinions Food inspection companies may welcome new opportunities

- May 12, 2018-

With the remarkable improvement of people’s living standards and the awakening of health awareness, domestic consumers’ demand for high-end dairy products has been growing. According to data from the National Bureau of Statistics, China's dairy product output shows a year-on-year growth trend from 2010 to 2016. From January to November 2017, the national output of dairy products reached 27.244 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 3.9%. As we all know, raw milk is an important raw material for high-end dairy products and will directly affect the quality of dairy products.


On March 6th, the new national raw milk standard publicly solicited opinions and fresh milk classification standards will be issued. The incident caused widespread public debate. The industry generally believes that this will, to a certain extent, guide milk processing companies to actively build their own quality milk source bases and form a sound development of the entire dairy industry chain.


Standards can only play with the times if they are in line with the times and are in line with market development needs. It is reported that the current implementation of raw milk standards in China was formulated in 2010. Wang Jiaqi, the chief expert of the Dairy Innovation Team of the Institute of Animal Husbandry, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, frankly stated that using a fixed indicator to measure the cattle and milk produced on such a vast land in China is not suitable. On the other hand, China's dairy industry has entered a stage of steady growth. In the new stage of development, the healthy and orderly development of the dairy products industry requires standardized standards to guide.


In fact, at present, many countries and regions in the world have adopted a raw milk classification system. This model helps encourage aquaculture companies to raise good cows and processing companies to use good milk. It is beneficial to the upgrading of the entire industrial chain and will ultimately depend on the market. The power of the whole dairy industry led to the development of quality.


With the further development of China’s economic development and people’s living standards, there is a huge potential for development and growth in the dairy product market in China. The demand for high-quality raw milk continues to grow strongly. With the continuous increase in industry concentration, the domestic dairy product manufacturers' market competition will continue to heat up and the internal product structure of the industry will be further upgraded. The dairy product industry has gradually shifted from scale growth to quality upgrade.


Needless to say, products such as normal-temperature yogurt, room temperature lactic acid bacteria beverages, and low-temperature yoghurt are healthier and have higher added value. Products that meet consumer demand are increasingly favored by the market and continue to promote the prosperity and development of the dairy product industry. The formulation of a new national standard for raw milk will accelerate the faster and better development of the dairy industry.


The multiple forces in the dairy industry's policies and markets are also new opportunities for the rapid food testing equipment industry. Under the control of food inspection, each dairy product company will make full use of its respective resources, technology, and other advantages to continuously deliver high-end dairy products to the market in order to gain relative initiative in market competition.


With the rapid development of China's dairy processing industry, dairy products have become one of the fastest-growing industries in the food industry. Not only have their output and sales increased substantially, but their varieties have also become increasingly abundant. For instrument manufacturers who are cultivating here, with the aid of policy dividends and the use of new standards in the selection of high-quality dairy raw materials, it will be possible to occupy a greater market share from product quality. At the same time, related food testing companies will also usher in a new wave of development.
