Fonterra expects operations at the plant to begin in December 2014. Speaking with DairyReporter.com, Robert Lilly, marketing and innovation project manager at Fonterra Europe, said that the launch of NZMP europro marks the culmination of its sourcing efforts and signals that it is "here to stay." Scoping out other opportunities Were investing heavily, and were here to stay, said Lilly.We have established partnerships with First Milk in the UK, with Rokiskio in Lithuania, and we have invested here at Heerenveen, he said. Fonterra is "also exploring other" sourcing opportunities in Eastern Europe, Lilly said. At the moment, the priority is getting the Heerenveen plant online, but we are also scoping out other opportunities. In the next couple of years well be looking to establish more partnerships. What were trying to promote is that we are here to stay were investing a lot and weve launched this product," he said. Whey protein demand booming Lilly cited growing global consumer demand for dairy, and particularly whey protein, as a key driver of Fonterra's recent European whey sourcing efforts. Whey used to be just a by-product of cheese production, said Lilly. Now demand for whey protein is booming. While a significant amount of this demand is coming from Asia, much of the NZMP europro produced in the UK, Lithuania, and the Netherlands will not leave Europe. We have a large number of customers in Europe," said Lilly."The whey protein being produced by First Milk and here in Heerenveen will be shipped out to Asia.

In fact there have been reports of some people experiencing sensitivity to Manuka Honey that is that potent. Manuka Honey has many health benefits when used for medicinal purposes, both internally and topically on the skin. The water-soluble vitamins, on the other hand, are more often found in vegetables and fruits. Some foods are naturally rich in fat-soluble vitamins like butter, vegetable oils, egg yolk, and liver. Honeymark carries active Manuka Honey UHF 16+ which is ideal for therapeutic use. Manuka Honey with a UHF rating of 20 or higher is very rare, extremely expensive and overly potent. Manuka Honey with a UHF rating of less than 10 may not have enough antibacterial properties to effectively treat more serious conditions. Another thing to consider is that if a Manuka Honey brand does not indicate on the label that it is from New Zealand or doesn't display a UHF rating or Methylglyoxal level, its potency might be questionable. There are two vital elements that are important to ones health and keep the body balanced: vitamins and minerals.
Honeymark International is well-known for its unique line of high-end skin cis products that utilizes Manuka Honey as a natural healing agent. So, if people have extra money from bonuses or mayday advances, better stock up on good vitamins and minerals for better health. This low-grade Manuka Honey doesn't have any more healing properties than the ordinary honey that you would find in your local supermarket. “Any store that is currently selling Manuka Honey knows that it has a tendency to fly off the shelves,” says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. That is why RDAs, or the Recommended Daily Allowance, is important to be understood and followed. Honeymark, now offers retailers easy access to this premium honey. The most ideal Manuka Honey is a medium range with a UHF rating of 10-18. Manuka Honey has many health benefits when used for medicinal purposes, both internally and topically on the skin. From A to zinc, so goes the advertising slogan of a popular vitamin supplement brand.
