New product design can result in benefits throughout the life cycle of the product, with reduced waste, reduced energy and water consumption and higher yields. The new process often requires new process equipment and marketing efforts to establish the new product in the market place successfully. An example is the ultrafiltration of milk for cheese manufacture which increases the recovery of whey proteins in the cheese and reduces whey volumes. Cheese produced from these processes is smoother and can have a more tangy flavour. The marketability of these new cheeses needs to be managed by introducing these changes to consumers as deliberate and desirable in a new product range (Jameson 1987).
Many of the examples of Cleaner Production discussed here demonstrated increased profitability with short payback periods. Continued implementation of Cleaner Production strategies in the dairy industry will create economic opportunities yet at the same time improve the long-term ecological sustainability of the industry.
