Harjinder Singh Receives IDFA Dairy Research Award

Harjinder Singh, Ph.D., has received the 2015 IDFA Research Award in Dairy Foods Processing at this month’s annual meeting of the American Dairy Science Association.

“This award recognises Professor Singh’s contribution to the dairy industry. And, it also reinforces the Riddet Institute’s, Massey University’s and New Zealand’s roles as leaders in dairy science and technology,” said Professor Paul Moughan, Singh’s co-director at the Riddet Institute.

The prestigious award is awarded annually to leading researchers in the field of dairy science to recognize those whose findings have helped to develop new products and have made significant long-term improvements in the quality, safety or processing efficiency of dairy foods.

Singh holds an industry‐endowed chair in Dairy Science and Technology at Massey University in New Zealand and is Distinguished Professor and Director at the Riddet Institute. He is co-inventor of 10 patents and has received numerous awards and honors.

“The ADSA award is in recognition of Professor Singh’s work during the past quarter of a century. It further demonstrates the ability of the Riddet Institute and Massey University to generate value for the international dairy sector,” said Steve Maharey, Massey University Vice-Chancellor.
