In the United Kingdom the dairy cooperative First Milk has agreed a new partnership with the Danish headquartered dairy cooperative Arla, that has also British member farmers suppliers, to produce a specialist whey protein powder. Protein enrichment of food remains a growing consumer trend. The innovative patented microparticulate whey protein concentrate product, Nutrilac FO-7875, developed by Arla, is used as an ingredient to enhance the level of protein in food and drink products whilst retaining texture and taste. First Milk will manufacture Nutrilac FO-7875 on behalf of Arla using the company’s proprietary process, with Arla marketing and selling the product internationally. In addition, First Milk will continue to manufacture its own whey protein concentrate powder, WPC80, and market it through its existing partnership.
