Arla Food Ingredients to sell Lactose online

GlobalDairyTrade (GDT), the world’s leading online dairy auction platform, announced today that Arla Foods Ingredients (AFI) will offer food grade lactose on the platform.

AFI, a global leader in producing natural whey ingredients, is an independently-operated subsidiary of Arla Foods, a leading European dairy co-operative, and GDT registered seller.

GDT director Paul Grave said Arla Food Ingredients will offer a significant volume of lactose to the platform.

“AFI’s offering of lactose on GDT reflects an increasing trend for European producers to seek export of Europe, and to extend their reach to the global market, as they expand production.”

“The quantity of AFI’s lactose will deepen liquidity of the product group and the auction will set the market-based benchmark price for lactose. We are confident in the global demand for lactose, and expect a high level of interest from across our network of over 650 registered buyers.”

“We continue to innovate and grow the platform for international trade in a broad range of dairy commodities,” said Grave.

Lactose is commonly used in the food and confectionary industries, since it has a low sweetness, binds flavours and aromas and increases storage life. It is used in preparing baked goods, and also within the pharmaceutical industry, giving the commodity appeal across a wide range of buyers.
