Molkom launched new line of baby food

The Penza dairy processing plant (entering DAMATE Group) launched a new line of baby food. The entire volume of new product will be sold in the Penza region and through major federal chains in Moscow and the Moscow region.

The new line of baby food was launched on January 30, 2018 at the Penza dairy processing plant Molkom, which is a member of DAMATE Group. 160 million rubles had been invested in the project. This sum was spent on a full range of modernization works of the baby food shop starting from design and purchase of equipment to construction and installation work on the site.

Aseptic packaging is used for the new product - an eco-friendly made of box of six-layer pasteboard in the volume of 200 ml with a straw, which preserves the product freshness for its entire shelf life. The capacity of a new TetraPak line is 9,000 packs per hour.

Molkom will produce specialized products of dietary and preventive nutrition for children from the age of eight months under its own brand of "Mamalysh" on the new line. The first product brought to the market was bifilife. The products are made exclusively of the highest quality milk. The supplier is the company Rusmolko - one of the largest producers of raw milk in the country.

"We consider the production of baby food one of the most promising areas in the dairy market," said Rashid Khairov, the co-owner and CEO of DAMATE, "We hope that children who grew up on delicious and healthy dairy products from Molkom will remain our buyers further. Thanks to a large-scale reconstruction of production facilities, we can now offer them products of the highest quality, made of selected milk that complies with strict sanitary standards."

At an initial stage 7 tons of the product per day will be produced on the new line. The growth up to 15 tons per day within six month with the possibility of further increase in production volumes is projected.

Molkom plans to sell the entire volume of the product produced on the new line in the Penza region and through major federal chains in Moscow and the Moscow region.

Molkom have been producing baby food from 2013, that is cottage cheese for children from 6 months.
