Chinese customers that attended the Forum heard about U.S. dairy trade with China and the global dairy outlook. USDEC staff discussed the U.S. offering of dairy protein, permeate and milk powder ingredients, focusing on their functionality and global uses. Professor Zhou from Jiangnan University presented the China-centric innovation work done by the team. USDEC members also presented on their company product offerings and the value of permeate in swine nutrition.
