U.S. Dairy Ingredient Technical Training Workshops

May 11–20, 2021


U.S. Dairy Ingredients

USDEC will host in-person technical training workshops on the benefits of using U.S. dairy ingredients in fresh and semi-hard cheeses that are unique to Mexico, including queso panela, queso ranchero and queso blanco. The workshops are held in partnership with Mexico's INCALEC (Institute of Meat and Milk of Mexico) and leading food technology university Tecnologico de Monterrey.

Industry and technical experts will demonstrate the significant benefits of using U.S. dairy ingredients in fresh cheeses with emphasis on proper hydration of the ingredients among other formulation advice. Participants will have the opportunity for hands-on application of what they've learned by using U.S. dairy ingredients to make the cheeses.

The workshops will take place May 11-14 in Ciatej Center, Guadalajara as well as May 19-20 in Rancho El Castillo, Celaya, and will be held according to social distancing requirements (some sessions will also be live-streamed and recorded). Additional information and details will be provided as they become available.
