Tetra Pak provide right formula for Laverstoke Park Farm
Tetra Pak CPS has installed a fully bespoke dairy plant at former Formula One racing champion Jody Scheckter’s award winning Laverstoke Park Farm (UK) for processing of its range of buffalo milk products.
The Sherborne based company managed the process engineering from start to finish. The completely automated system comprises equipment for producing mozzarella, ice cream and pasteurised milk with a fully integrated single channel Cleaning-In-Place and hot water system completing the package.
This new range of equipment has enabled Laverstoke Park to fulfil its need for better processes with greater control, increased throughput, flexibility and product security.
The mozzarella manufacturing plant includes two 1,000 litre tip tanks for making curd, a moulding machine, cheese cooling and brining tables, draining tables and a rotary machine for filing and packing balls of mozzarella into pots with brine.
A new 1,000 litre per hour pasteuriser, two 2,000 litre storage tanks and the new carton machine, which can fill up to 1,500 Tetra Rex cartons an hour, have boosted milk capacity dramatically for the Hampshire farm. The Hoyer ice cream whipper freezer and cone/pot filling machine complete the processing plant.
By using Tetra Rex cartons, Tetra Pak CPS has helped Laverstoke Park Farm tick the box for environmentally aware consumers. These lightweight cartons are made from natural, renewable resource-wood and are low carbon. They also protect products from harmful light.
