Cheese Technology Expo Announces 2018 Seminar ScheduleWisconsin Ag Connection - December 07, 2017
The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association and Center for Dairy Research have announced new partnerships with the U.S. Dairy Export Council, Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy, and Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board to deliver greater diversity and depth of
programming for its 2018 International Cheese Technology Expo. The program is slated for April 17-19 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee.
Organizers say ICTE seminars explore five main themes, including challenges in global trade, pathogen control and food safety, cheese quality issues and solutions, growth opportunities in specialty cheese, and a focus on whey and dairy proteins.
"The ICTE's reputation is grounded in its technical programming, offering educational opportunities for everyone in the industry," said WCMA Director John Umhoefer. "We’ll have timely information for industry leaders and marketers, safety professionals and cheesemakers, and HR professionals and supervisors."
The conference will also feature two workshop tracks with limited attendance. The Artisan Track offers specialty cheesemakers talks on Food Safety Modernization Act regulations, milk analytics, and the unique opportunity to make fresh cheeses with Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers® and CDR experts at Clock Shadow Creamery.
There will also be a trade show made up of nearly 300 companies showcasing their technology and services.
