Tetra Pak CPS Completes Flagship Teaching Dairy
12th August 2010
Following the completion of a modern teaching dairy at Reaseheath College, Tetra Pak CPS now has a complete range of state-of-the-art processing plant under one roof showcasing its broad spectrum of capabilities.
Set in 500 acres of farm lands, lakes and woodland the modern training unit at Reaseheath College includes a highly automated raw milk offloading, storage and distribution system, a low throughput milk separation plant and a flexible mix, pasteurisation and ageing/incubation plant for processing various milk products including yoghurt, custard and ice cream.
The development of the facility has been a true testament to an impressive cross-section of abilities provided by Tetra Pak CPS, from bespoke design and build of processing plant, to specialist application, engineering and servicing advice all linked by conscientious project management.
This unique project brought together leading dairy representatives including Arla Foods UK, Robert Wiseman Dairies, First Milk, Milk Link, Muller Dairy and Dairy Crest, who have been able to witness at first hand the scope and range of skills Tetra Pak CPS can provide for the industry.
Sales Manager for Tetra Pak CPS Tony Casey commented: “Working alongside key dairy manufacturers has opened up eyes for many within the industry in terms of what Tetra Pak CPS is capable of achieving and the level of service we are able to provide. Building these relationships with such influential people in the industry is invaluable to us.”
Based in Sherborne, Dorset, Tetra Pak CPS already has a strong reputation for its flexibility and cost effective turnkey processing plant design and is renowned for providing cutting edge, bespoke solutions to a long list of well known and specialist processing companies.
Tetra Pak CPS is extremely proud to have led the way throughout this unique project which has had involvement and support from the entire dairy industry, including the industry’s trade organisation Dairy UK and the sector skills council, Improve.
Mr Casey said: “Our knowledge and expertise has been the foundation of this development and we have not only supported the college with guidance, materials for the build, educational tools and maintenance and equipment training but have also strengthened our relationships and position within the dairy manufacturing sector".
