WHEY POWDER UP 1.4% TO €867/t – Source: Dairy Industry Newsletter September 16, 2014

With 412t sold out of 692t of dairy commodities offered, it was a slightly better week for volumes at today’s Netherlands-based Dairy Auctions Online. The average price for whey powder was also higher—a total 364t inched up 1.4% to average €867/t. Most was sold at or close to starting bids but the biggest (225t) consignment attracted some competition to realize €881/t, adding €12/t to a similar sale last week. SMP remains in the doldrums, down 24% since it was last sold 2mths ago to €1,799/t for 48t sold. The auction realized €0.42m.

MORE EVIDENCE OF MARKETS STABILIZING – Source: Dairy Industry Newsletter September 17, 2014

There was some more evidence today that global dairy product prices are stabilizing—after yesterday's unchanged result at the GDT auction—after months of steep falls. The Dutch Dairy Board left most of their weekly prices unchanged but cut their official price for butter by €50/tonne to €2,850/t and raised their whey powder price by €40 to €860/t. WMP was unchanged at €2,370/t, SMP (food) at €2,010/t and SMP (feed) at €1,780.

IDB SEEK $500m US EXPORTS – Source: Dairy Industry Newsletter September 17, 2014

The Irish Dairy Board say they plan to double US exports over the next 6yrs in the belief that Americans will be willing to trade up for more expensive, imported butter and cheese even at record prices. US revenue for the IDB roughly quadrupled over the past 5yrs to just under $250m in 2013, IDB told the Wall Street Journal. They plan to run a major TV advertising campaign in the US next year, highlighting grass-fed Irish production. Kerrygold typically sells for around twice the price of private label US butters.

Track Reviewers for the Annual Meeting Scientific Program

Dear NPD member,

First of all, thank you for being an engaged member of the Nonthermal Community. As you know, the planning for the 2015 Annual Meeting of IFT is already starting to take shape. IFT is now sending out confirmations to those who have been accepted as Track Reviewers for the Annual Meeting Scientific Program.

I would like to kindly ask all NPD members who have received confirmation from IFT as a track reviewer or for any other Annual Meeting related activity to please let Erika (E.Georget@dil-ev.de) or me (cim24@cornell.edu) know about this. This will allow us to have a better idea of the involvement of NPD members in the planning of the Annual Meeting.

Sincerely,

Carmen I. Moraru
