Dale Farm co-operative, which is 100% owned by United Dairy Farmers, decided to look no further than Tetrapak company CPS when it wanted to invest in cheese making equipment and process plant.
The equipment is part of a £3M expansion at its Dunmanbridge operation in Cookstown, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
This will make Dunmanbridge one of the largest milk processing sites in the UK.
After talking to CPS, the dairy installed two Wincanton 20,000 litre capacity cheese vats and two cheese towers as well as a self-cleaning whey clarifier and a self-cleaning whey separator from Italian equipment manufacturer Reda.
Both CPS and Reda have a proven track record of successful joint operations stretching back over a period of 25 years. And the Wincanton name has been known as a watchword for quality for even longer.
Reda separators and clarifiers skim milk and whey with maximum efficiency, which is why the company's commitment to development work on its high quality products have seen it grow into one of the European market leaders.
The Wincanton cheese towers (pictured above) are capable of producing accurate 20kg blocks of cheese at rates of between 800kg and 1,500kg/h.
