Tetra Pak opens €25 million cheese production centre

Tetra Pak has announced the opening of a €25 million ($40 million) engineering and manufacturing facilities for cheese production solutions. The centre will have full-scale engineering capabilities, from cheese-making process design to mechanical, automation and electrical engineering through to manufacturing of processing solutions.

Located in Olsztyn, in north-eastern Poland, the facility has been designed and constructed in full compliance with Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) requirements. The site has a fully automatic ‘weather control’ system that manages ventilation and sunlight, and a rainwater collection system that supplies water for site maintenance. Employing over 350 staff, the facility has doubled the company’s cheese-making solution capacity in the country.

“As the only company able to deliver a completely seamless integrated solution for cheese production, this investment demonstrates our commitment to help customers meet rapidly changing consumer demands and capture emerging growth opportunities,” said Ola Elmqvist, Executive Vice President of Processing Solutions & Equipment at Tetra Pak.

The global cheese market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% reaching 31,000 kilotons by 2023, largely due to increasing demand for semi-hard cheese and mozzarella. Tetra Pak strives to support customers in their development of new production methods and processes that meet trends for cheese as an ingredient, on-the-go snack and high-protein diet addition.
