Tetra Pak CPS Has a Lot of Bottle for Milk Producer
16th December 2009
The UK’s leading supplier of fresh liquid milk and cream, Arla Foods UK Plc, chose Tetra Pak CPS Ltd as its process partner for the supply of a bespoke, pilot processing plant for its new high tech facility at Stourton, Leeds.
The multi-purpose pilot plant will further increase Arla Foods’ flexibility to develop and expand its production capabilities to produce a wider range of fresh and UHT dairy based products.
Arla Foods is a major supplier to leading supermarket groups including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda and processes over two billion litres of milk a year.
As a result of Arla Foods and Tetra Pak CPS working closely together it was possible to design and build customised processing equipment that was cost effective, compact, flexible for product changeover, and easy to use.
The new plant is also able to operate at two rates – 125 lph for product development and 225 lph for smaller commercial runs for consumer testing.
Tetra Pak CPS is a global supplier of processing equipment and turnkey systems for the dairy industry and has over 60 years of project management experience. Its engineering team worked closely with Arla Foods to ensure that all of the project requirements were met.
Sales Manager for Tetra Pak CPS, Tony Casey, commented: “Arla Foods require cost effective easily maintained equipment. By working closely together and combining both our companies experience we have been able to achieve this through high quality ‘value engineering’ where both new and refurbished equipment was utilised. We have helped Arla Foods equip its new facility and further improved its capacity for product development and will be looking to help increase the company’s production needs with other upgrades in the future.”
