Molcom puts soft cottage cheese production complex into operation.

Another stage of a large-scale modernization was completed at the Penza dairy processing plant (entering DAMATE Group): a complex for production of soft cottage cheese was put into operation in August.

Molcom increases capacities in soft cottage cheese production by means of ultrafiltration. In August the whole production complex was put into operation: new tanks that allow production of several tons of the product at once, blending equipment that works in a stream  Alfa Laval / PCM, and a cottage cheese production line that is based on a ultrafiltration method produced by Alima Bis (Poland). Starting-up and adjustment works were carried out by the Polish and French specialists.

It should be reminded that the first line of Alima Bis company was installed at the plant in 2013. Its launch allowed to use a modern packaging format, to conduct aseptic filling of products with a help of a minimum number of employees: only two operators work on the line.

The decision to purchase and install a new set of equipment was made in 2016 due to the growing popularity of soft curds among buyers and an increase in the number of orders for these products.

Currently, two lines allow processing up to 1800 tons of raw milk per month. Installation and launch of new equipment will significantly expand the range of products of the largest Penza milk processor.

Modernization of the oldest dairy plant in Penza was started after it joined DAMATE Group. For several years, an impressive amount of work has been done, which affected all the production areas: from the acceptance of raw milk to the organization of delivery of products to retail stores. The purpose of modernization is to improve the quality of products, expand the range and increase the volume of processing. The total volume of investments in Molcom has already exceeded 1.4 billion rubles. All the production facilities of the company are designed for processing of up to 500 tons of milk per day.
