Tims Dairy, based in Chalfont St Peter, has been making yogurt for 66 years. After significant investment, the dairy now has capacity to produce 200t a week.
The milk is heat treated then combined with live and bio-live cultures to produce a range of Greek style, whole milk and low-fat yogurts.
UPM was consulted to provide solutions to the end-of-line yogurt pot tray packing and stacking into stillages to ensure a smooth transition of product ready for dispatch.
A carousel was designed with work stations that incorporated a central packed tray conveyor to allow operators to pack 150 pots a minute into trays.
These are then transferred to a stillage via the central conveyor. For more information, contact UPM Conveyor.
