70 environmental staff from all MD Foods' dairies in Denmark recently met to establish a network for the purpose of exchanging views and experiences of environmental work at the dairies. During the meeting, participants were presented with a new environmental database which will gather and disseminate knowledge of technological solutions for the dairy industry.
MD’s environmental targets include a 66% reduction in the impact of staff in certain areas over the next five years. Over the same period, energy consumption per ton of received raw material must be cut by 10 % while consumption of water will be reduced by 20 %.
