Dairy Farming Promotion Organization of Thailand (DPO) is expanding its production capacity by installing three CFA 124 high-speed filling machines from SIG Combibloc.

The machines will aseptically fill up to 24,000 carton packs per hour for ‘Thai-Danish’ branded milk products in combiblocMini 125ml and 200 ml carton packs at its processing plant in Muaklek.

Four dairy plants

DPO started working with SIG Combibloc in 2004 and owns four dairies in Thailand; Sukhothai; Khon Kaen; Muaklek and Pranburi.

It already has SIG Combibloc filling machines at the Sukhothai factory – three CFA 124 for filling combiblocMini, and a CFA 712 to fill combiblocSmall carton packs.  

We are a non-profit organization. If our farmers are doing well and their farms are growing, then we at DPO can also grow. And we’re doing that​,” said Somporn Srimuang, head, DPO Muaklek.

The high-speed filling machines from SIG Combibloc will help us achieve our goal of increasing the 250 tonnes of raw milk per day that we currently process in Muaklek to 450 tonnes per day in the next three years​.”

Thai Danish Farm & Training Centre

Formerly known as the Thai Danish Farm and Training Centre (TDDF) as a cooperation between the Thai and Danish governments to develop Thailand’s dairy industry, the Thai Government took over the company in 1971.

Vatcharapong Ungsrisawasdi, country manager Thailand, SIG Combibloc, said it was proud to expand DPO’s production capacities in Muaklek.

The CFA 124 filling machines guarantee fast, efficient and flexible production. All volumes of 125, 150, 180, 200 and 250 ml can be filled using a single filling machine​,” he added.
