CALS Faces

John Lucey

John Lucey, professor of food science and director of the Center for Dairy Research (CDR), has expertise in dairy manufacturing, dairy food products and the cheese industry. He has been discussing the unprecedented challenges facing the dairy industry due to COVID-19. The pandemic has caused much of the foodservice industry to close, which isn’t good news for the dairy industry — about 40% of all cheese goes into foodservice. Many dairy processors are trying to find new areas to sell their products. CDR is working with the dairy industry to help companies adapt to this challenging situation. Among other work, CDR has been sharing research on how dairy processors can extend the shelf-life of cheese, including via a webinar attended by over 500 participants.
