How TydenBrooks UK Helps to Safeguard the Dairy Industry’s Creamy Secrets!

dairy tanker seals

Dairy produce holds a prominent place in the food industry, gracing our tables in various forms such as milk, cheese, butter, and countless dairy-infused products. Yet, beneath its creamy allure lies a delicate nature, sensitive to temperature fluctuations that can quickly lead to spoilage. In this article, we delve into the world of temperature-controlled logistics and explore how its meticulous management safeguards the integrity and quality of dairy-based products. Let us embark on a journey through the meticulous process that ensures our dairy delights reach us in pristine condition.

The Sensitivity of Dairy to Temperature

Dairy products are renowned for their sensitivity to temperature. The molecular structure of milk-based products, like cheese and butter, can be easily altered by heat, leading to undesirable changes in taste, texture, and overall quality. Milk is highly perishable, making it imperative to maintain strict temperature control throughout its journey from the farm to your table.

The Dairy Industry's Regulatory Landscape

Ensuring Milk Quality from Farm to Table

One major factor, specifically for dairy, is preventing contamination. A multi-layered security strategy using TydenBrooks’ security seals is the best way to protect supply chains from tampering and contamination.

The Dairy Transport Assurance Scheme UK and Dairy UK have created a handbook of guidelines on set by the UK government, which members of the scheme have been working with since 2013. Its goal is to ensure the supply of milk in the U.K. is safe by focusing UK law on preventing contamination rather than simply responding to it.

Milk Collection: A Precarious Process

At the heart of the dairy supply chain is the collection of milk from farms. TydenBrooks understands that this critical step is where the journey of dairy products begins. Here, strict protocols are followed to maintain hygiene and quality. TydenBrooks collaborates with dairy farms to develop tamper-evident solutions that can be colour-coded for each part of the operation, securing milk collection points and averting any potential breaches.

TydenBrooks security seals help this process in the dairy industry by deterring unauthorized access and providing tamper evidence. Our security seals are laser-marked with sequential serial numbers and barcodes that are used to record data such as dates, times, suppliers, and other important information about a shipment. When a milk tanker shipment arrives, the seals are all checked to make sure the numbers match what is on record and that none have been tampered with or removed and replaced.  

How to Secure Tanker Trucks and Railcars for the dairy industry

The TydenBrooks Advantage

Innovative Tamper-Evident Solutions

The most effective strategy for protecting these supply chains is to create a strong multilayered security strategy using a number of TydenBrooks security seals together. Plastic seals such as our SecurePull and SecureGrip; cable seals such as our EZ LOC and FlexSecure; and bolt seals such as our SnapTracker; are used at different levels of the security process in the supply chain. Tanker trucks usually use anywhere from 12 to 15 security seals to secure all access points and keep track of shipment information. If any seals are broken or show signs of tampering, an extensive investigation takes place and the shipment is rejected.

Storage: Safeguarding Dairy's Future

The security process begins before the milk is loaded into the tanker truck. The stainless steel truck is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after which a plastic seal, such as our SecurePull 3.8mm and our SecureGrip, is used to seal the tanker and ensure it remains sanitized for the next load of milk it picks up. This process is also done on plastic storage tanks that hold milk, then are thoroughly cleaned and reused. These seals are also numbered or barcoded in order to prove they are the same seals that were originally applied. Cable and bolt seals are also used in storage such as on milk houses and silos.

These examples of layered security systems were originally used by global Military organisations and are proven to provide the best protection.

Securing the Dairy Supply Chain: TydenBrooks' 50-Year Commitment

The dairy industry has some of the strictest rules and regulations around the world when it comes to gathering, transporting, and storing products. Milk is a highly perishable commodity, vulnerable to spoilage and contamination. In the UK today, there are 12,000 active dairy farmers, producing over 15 billion litres of milk every year with dairy products worth £9.2 billion in wholesale revenue.

Therefore, adhering to stringent guidelines from the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards, is imperative to safeguard the integrity of the dairy supply chain. TydenBrooks, with a rich history spanning over five decades, has been an unwavering partner to the dairy industry, dedicating itself to the protection of supply chains and, consequently, the well-being of the myriad consumers who rely on dairy products.
