This International Symposium was attended by representatives from all fields of the dairy industry, the intention being to provide an occasion where experts could meet the industry and discuss exactly what dairy people need to know, in relation to Codex, for their daily work. The following issues were examined:
- International food legislation
- The agreements on the application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT)
- Food safety regulation and control

- Examples of practical use of Codex standards for milk products.
Protein Standardization – The Case of Liquid Milks
Abstracts of the IDF Symposium held in Sandton, South Africa, 19 October 1996
Protein standardization of liquid milks for direct consumption is a complex issue. Although several economic benefits have been identified, there are also a number of risks, particularly at the macro-economic level in some countries. The 10 abstracts presented here deal with:
- the normal variations of the protein content of the milk
- the micro- and macro-economic factors
- consumer attitudes and expectations in France, Germany, the UK, Australia, and the USA
- legalization of protein standardization of drinking milk.
