Tetra Pak’s first complete processing line for feta type white cheese products offers a fully automated and integrated solution to ensure the highest standard of food safety.
The complete processing line has been designed to produce a diverse range of white cheese products, using proven technologies such as ultrafiltration and high shear mixing to allow customers to explore this new market and increase current production capacity. The processing line works for both Bacteriological Acidified Feta (BAF) and Glucone Delta Lactone (GDL) using a hygienic and safe process to ensure long product shelf life.
The company says that by using a closed and fully automated line solution, without manual contact with the product, it is easier for its customers to achieve high efficiency and minimise loss. In addition, the product is food safe and ready for consumption straight after being packaged.
Tetra Pak is launching this 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 36.5 billion kg by 2030.
