Sustainability is a research focus area that will improve economic, social, and environmental impact of dairy. Our priorities in this area include:

  • Add value to dairy co-products such as high-value ingredients for health and wellness, bioplastics, and personal care.
  • Develop leaner manufacturing technologies.
  • Educate the younger generation on sustainability of dairy vs plant-based foods.
  • Optimize water usage and wastewater management.
