The project will evolve existing nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology to foster the development of a testing service that distinguishes organic from conventional milk, at all supply chain levels (farm, preproduction, retail), thus enhancing credibility of the dairy supply chain and consumer trust on the final product. The objectives will be achieved via farm and retail surveys across UK and Finland and the service will be calibrated for different countries, seasons, and supply chain levels. The service will include a protocol which can be adopted by milk recording authorities, food authentication laboratories, government bodies, and value-added companies which use organic milk as a key ingredient.
