Utilization of by-products of cheese-making and productization of whey in Northern area

What we do

ArcticFoodWhey is concerned with promoting the transition to a circular and resource efficient economy in the dairy industry, especially in small-scale dairies and cheese factories, in Finland, Ireland and Faroe Islands. Whey has been used, for example, in protein powders - some larger scale dairies have also developed other products. However, there is still need for jointly developed, effective, and common solutions for reducing whey waste, as well as applying knowledge to practice. The core of the preparatory project is to develop and share best practices concerning better use of whey through transnational co-operation. The project will conclude with the main project application.
