High volume commodity cheddar cheese plant planned for Workington in Cumbria

Partners in Cheese's (PiC's) planned Lakeland Dairy Park commodity cheddar plant will prove financially viable because of its efficient automated operation, claims md Ronald Akkerman.

The £44m, 400ml facility (see Food Manufacture, p4, May 2005), is expected to begin construction under the supervision of Clegg Food Projects later this month. The project, led by a group of Dutch entrepreneurs, is based on technology recently commissioned in The Netherlands.

The high throughput facility will consume less energy and have lower carbon dioxide emissions than conventional cheese plants, claims Akkerman. Combined heat and power (CHP) facilities are being considered on-site.

"The only future is for large-scale, high volume, low-cost operations," says Akkerman.
