Supporting the dairy processing sector go ‘green’

Researchers at the University of Surrey including Surrey Business School’s Dr Rosie Cole, CUSP (Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity) Co-Investigator Professor Angela Druckman and Dr Devendra Saroj from Civil and Environmental Engineering, have supported Food Forward Ltd in a successful funding bid.

Food Forward Ltd, the green technology company, along with the project team has been awarded £60,000 of funding from Innovate UK to build out its flagship data platform for the UK dairy industry.

London-based Food Forward aims to be the UK's leading green tech business for the food sector. The new tool, Dairy Forward, will match UK manufacturers of dairy foods with sustainable energy, food waste and water management technologies.

Using actionable data, Dairy Forward is able to compare producers of cheese, butter, yoghurt and other dairy products with each other in terms of energy consumed and waste produced. Read more here.
