The company said it is launching the best practice line to enable white milk producers and traditional cheese makers to explore opportunities within white cheese.
The global cheese market is expected to grow from 28 to 36.5bn kg with a CAGR of 2.4% by 2030: fresh cheese, including white cheese, represents 30% of total volume growth by 2030, according to a Proteus study in 2019.
“We wanted to make cheese production as straightforward as possible and enable customers to discover new opportunities in white cheese,” Joanna Majewska, business development liquid filled cheese line, Tetra Pak, said.
“Using a closed and fully automated line solution, without manual contact with the product, we are making it easier for customers to achieve profitability, high efficiency and minimize loss. Plus, the product is food safe and ready for consumption straight after being packaged.”
The complete processing line has been designed to produce a diverse range of white cheese products, utilizing proven technologies, such as ultrafiltration and high shear mixing, to facilitate customer exploration of a new market segment and increase current production capacity.
The processing line works for both BAF (Bacteriological Acidified Feta) and GDL (Glucone Delta Lactone) using a hygienic and safe process to ensure long product shelf life.
