Stick to the original heart
Building a dairy industry that faces people’s lives and health
Into the dairy product quality and risk assessment innovation team of the Institute of Animal Husbandry Medicine of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences,”Put what you have learned, contribute to the dairy industry, healthy China” 12 characters, always remind all team members, scientific research results must be able to do Used by the industry to produce high-quality dairy products to serve the improvement of people’s health.
The Alliance was established in 2016. The main task is to implement high-quality milk engineering. Through science and technology, realizing the localization of fresh raw milk in milk sources; realizing low-carbon processing in technology; realizing high-quality milk products in terms of products; realizing rationalization of national consumption in terms of consumption, and achieving standard leadership— Leading by quality-the exemplary role of brand leading, significantly improving the technological competitiveness of the national dairy industry, and providing consumers with truly healthy, safe, low-carbon, green, and nutritious dairy products.
In the past 6 years, the number of companies implementing high-quality milk projects has increased from 3 in 2016 to 60 dairy companies in 25 provinces. The lactoferrin content in domestically produced high-quality pasteurized milk products is 8%of that of imported milk. The output accounts for more than 90%of the total domestic market. The high-quality dairy engineering demonstration enterprise has made tangible contributions to the life and health of the people.
At the Alliance Working Conference, 31 companies including Bright Dairy and Cai Yongkang and other 12 advanced individuals were commended for the”People’s Life and Health” and have made outstanding contributions to innovation, and awarded the”Quality Dairy Project for Healthy China””Advanced Enterprise” medal and”Personal Outstanding Contribution to the Quality Development of Dairy Industry” medal
”The high-quality milk project is not a project or a sport, but a long-term commitment.” Wang Jiaqi, chairman of the alliance, pointed out that the implementation of the high-quality milk project is a strategic way to develop a high-quality green dairy industry. Only by turning local milk into high-quality milk can consumer confidence be gradually restored, and the national dairy industry can become an indispensable industry for a healthy China and a strong nation, and can help the next generation grow up healthily and provide strong support for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation!
leads the high-quality development of the dairy industry
On the basis of decades of scientific research, researcher Wang Jiaqi led the alliance to innovate the grading technology of raw milk, green and low carbon in response to major industrial problems such as the unsound benefit linkage mechanism of the dairy industry and the low core competitiveness of dairy products. Processing technology, milk quality evaluation technology and high-quality milk identification technology are four core technologies, 26 standards for the entire industry chain have been formulated, and the scientific concept and technical system of high-quality milk engineering have been initially constructed, which firmly connects breeding and processing enterprises. Always lead the direction of industry development.
In 2021, 60 companies in 25 provinces have voluntarily implemented the high-quality milk project, which has achieved remarkable results. After the application of grading technology for raw milk in Guangming Dairy, processing companies actively search for high-quality milk sources. Under the condition that the national milk price is generally low, the purchase price of high-quality raw milk increased by 0.15 yuan per kilogram, and the income of each adult cow will increase every year. 686 yuan, which positively guides the distribution of interests in the dairy industry, has solved the long-standing problem of unbalanced distribution of interests between dairy farmers and dairy companies, and effectively protected the interests of dairy farmers.
The green and low-carbon processing technology leads the processing companies to eliminate the pre-pasteurization and flashing processes in the traditional processing technology. The processing temperature is reduced from the original 105°C to 75°C. The demonstration enterprise saves 48.55 yuan per ton of pasteurized milk processed. , The processing cost is reduced by more than 15%.
Milk quality evaluation technology guides the demonstration enterprise to fully tap the fresh advantages of local milk sources. The lactoferrin and β-lactoglobulin content in the produced high-quality pasteurized milk are 8 times and the imported pasteurized milk. 10 times. Demonstration companies have developed safe, healthy, green, low-carbon, and nutritious high-quality dairy products, and their core competitiveness has been significantly improved. They are confident and calmly deal with the impact of imports.
In 2020, 30 companies have passed the acceptance of high-quality milk engineering, and the production of high-quality pasteurized milk has accounted for more than 90%of the total market size and is deeply loved by consumers. The high-quality milk technology has helped companies to significantly enhance their core competitiveness and form Has a greater market influence.
High-quality milk can only be produced from local milk
In 2007, my country imported only 5 thousand tons of liquid milk, and in 2016 it soared to 655,000 tons. The average annual import growth rate in the past 10 years was as high as 72.0%, which caused domestic fresh milk purchases to suppress prices, limit revenue, and even reverse milk. One of the important reasons for this phenomenon is that the dairy farming industry has suffered a huge impact.
Imported liquid milk directly seizes the domestic consumer market. There are many brands (Figure 1), which has a great impact on consumers. Domestic dairy companies are passively beaten in the face of import shocks and lack core competitiveness, making it difficult to reverse the situation.
The question consumers are most concerned about is:domestic milk or imported milk, which kind of milk is better?

The alliance conducted a systematic evaluation of imported and domestic liquid milk. The results showed that the safety indicators of domestic milk and imported milk meet the national standards, but the important active nutritional factors such as lactoferrin, α-lactalbumin, β-lactoglobulin, etc. On the one hand, the quality of domestic high-quality liquid milk is better than imported liquid milk. Further analysis found that imported milk generally has problems such as long transportation distance, long shelf life or overheating, which leads to a significant drop in quality. Therefore, for the first time, the alliance clearly put forward the scientific concept of”high-quality milk produced from local milk”, which not only scientifically answered consumer concerns, but also became the foundation for domestic milk to respond to the impact of imports and remain invincible.
