Event Details

The dairy aisle is the most productive part of a grocery store with sales exceeding 11% of a store.  Milk is one of the anchor categories of dairy sales. However, it is well known that light damages the taste of milk and impairs "best taste experience" for consumers.  Currently, retail stores are switching to LED to save energy per EPA mandate, but LED light effects milk quality differently than conventional lighting. In this symposium you will:

  • Understand the impact of light on quality of milk
  • Learn packaging and lighting solutions to protect milk - its taste, flavor and nutrients
  • Gain an overview to deliver best taste experience of milk to consumers
  • Have an opportunity to network with fellow professionals and subject matter experts

Please see below for details:
