Cheese & Whey applications

Our systems can be used to manufacture every kind of cheese: Cheddar, Semi-Hard, Pasta Filata, Swiss, Feta, Cottage, Cream and various other filtration-based cheese types as well as whey powder. We implement solutions for all these varieties, and we support your production needs globally.

​​​​​Cheese consumption rising fast

Recent years have seen a boost in global cheese consumption, partly due to the westernisation of South East Asia's dietary habits and rising living standards. However, since many new markets have little or no local production, they are dependent on imports. Large quantities of cheddar and pasta filata are imported, for example, to China and India each year and used either as ingredients or for direct consumption. Smart manufacturers in the larger cheese producing nations are taking advantage of the potential in these growing markets by investing in increased production capacity. 

Known and trusted

Tetra Pak offers a complete portfolio of equipment for both cheese and whey production, along with the know-how to get the most out of your raw ingredients.

Our brand is synonymous with the systems used to produce a wide variety of high-quality cheeses and we support customers with expertise throughout the manufacturing process, from milk intake and pre-treatment through curd makingdrainage and forming , all the way to cheese handling.

Exploiting the whey content of the milk is now also regarded as essential for long-term competitiveness. We therefore offer a range of technologies for whey extraction and whey derived liquid and powder ingredients.

Designed for high volume production, Tetra Pak's tried and tested lines satisfy the larger customers' need for cost-efficient operation. They come with performance guarantees to give you additional peace of mind.

Farmhouse cheeses

Bulk production may be at an all-time high, but every trend has its accompanying countertrend. In the cheese world, it is farmhouse varieties. Speciality cheeses, usually based on traditional recipes and tied historically to specific regions, are also growing in popularity.  For the production of smaller volume or specialty products, Tetra Pak offers line equipment suitable for a minimum volume of 150 000 litres /day.

Quality and safety first

In Asia, the European dairy industry has a reputation for being quality controlled, and providing safe, nutritious products, which makes Western European imports even more attractive.  To help our European customers live up to their reputation for safety and, at the same time keep their costs in check, we offer tried and tested equipment. Take Tetra Pak's range of Casomatic cheese makers, for example. Designed and built with hygiene in focus, these machines are so inherently clean, that producers can run longer production cycles in between cleaning stops. This is just one of the many ways we contribute to the efficiency of your plant, and to your reputation for safety.
