STELA Symposium 2019

Meeting the challenge of sustainability in the dairy sector

Do not miss this scientific event with renowned speakers and the most recent research results regarding sustainability, such as ecoefficient dairy production, processing technologies and cheese making, optimization of dairy industry coproducts,  health benefits of milk and dairy products, food fraud in dairy, etc.

Speakers will go to the heart of concerns and challenges for the whole dairy industry network by giving their vision of the global situation and specifically that of Canada and Quebec. Also, scientists will highlight research results that meet sustainability challenges.

In exclusivity, the artisan cheesemakers, members of the Cheese expertise Centre (CEC), will organize a workshop, to which STELA Symposium attendees are invited, on the cost price of small scale cheese production, cheese organoleptic descriptors and brine care and management.
