A modern dairy is in the making

The new site stands tall, the buildings are almost complete. A striking feature is the steel frame of the fully automated high-bay warehouse, which will be able to accommodate 50,000 pallets. But the truly exciting work is going on out of sight. Process technology is being installed, machines and lines set up and the last pipes laid so that production can start on time at the end of the year.

From the initial idea to the acquisition of land, from rough outlines to detailed planning, everyone involved in the project has pulled together to make this greenfield dairy a reality in record time. We began implementing our strategy back in 2017 with the strong resolution to move forwards. The owners have proven this resolve with their financial commitment; this new facility is the largest investment project in the company’s history. Everyone is very aware of how much responsibility they have and so far, the work is running right on schedule. Starting in 2022, around 1,250 farmers from a total 2,500 member suppliers will deliver their raw milk here. 800 million litres of milk per year will be processed by more than 250 employees on the 21.5-hectare site, resulting in high-quality dairy products such as UHT milk, UHT cream, UHT milk mix products and condensed milk in a variety of packaging and formats.
