DuPont to launch curd cultures for Indian market
Its YO-MIX CURD Cultures series is designed to ensure a reliable industrial scale production of fresh, fermented dairy products such as Indian curd, lassi and buttermilk.
Parth Patel, business director, South Asia, DuPont Nutrition & Health said producing retail curd on an industrial scale and maintaining consistency through shelf-life can be a challenge for manufacturers.
He said the YO-MIX CURD Cultures have been developed to meet those challenges.
He added the Indian dairy industry consists of large milk cooperatives and innumerable small-medium dairies that exist in tier-2 cities.
Sujith Sathyadas, marketing manager, DuPont Nutrition & Health, South Asia, said, “Everyone wants to grow and make the best value added dairy products for their customers that meet their regional need and taste.
“I think that’s where we will add value, help them differentiate, innovate and commercialize products faster to market.”
