Why is innovation important?
Typically innovation is associated in generating and applying new ideas on processes or products. However, it is not only signified by these aspects but also it is a way of uncovering to do things in new ways. It can actually also lead to optimising business models or adapting changes to improve products or services.
Building innovation is a fine balance of ideas that address consumer demands at one end and spotting opportunities by identifying the upcoming trends. Typically, in the context of dairy industry innovation is either consumer-led or the technology-led.
For dairy, innovation has played an important role in the last few decades not only due to the technological advances in the industry but also due to the evolving tastes of people from various cultures across the globe pertaining to the dairy products.
Innovation in New Zealand Dairy Context
New Zealand has always been known for world leading dairy innovation in terms of products along with innovative farming that brings out the best in the animal breeding and sustainability of future.
One of the prime focus of innovations in dairy at New Zealand is providing safe and sustainable nutrition, which is also an important issue at the global level. It, therefore, plays a big role in dairy context.
