Tetra Pak has acquired Danish membrane filtration company DSS Silkeborg A/S, expanding its range of dairy processing solutions.

Established in 2000, DSS develops, designs, sells, builds and commissions membrane filtration systems for dairy applications using reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and microfiltration technologies. DSS’s in-depth understanding of fractionation processes, water treatment and dairy production enables the use of milk and whey to be maximised.

“The acquisition of DSS adds to Tetra Pak’s expertise in membrane filtration technology, enabling us to provide our customers with an even wider range of processing solutions for dairy, cheese and whey as well as other beverages and prepared foods,” said Tim High, Executive Vice President Processing Systems, Tetra Pak.

“The integration of DSS’s expertise with Tetra Pak’s energy, waste and water reduction technologies will provide our customers with processing solutions designed to reduce their carbon and water footprint as well as their operational costs.”

DSS will remain in Silkeborg, Denmark, with its current management team as part of Tetra Pak’s Cheese and Powder business unit. Existing sales channels will be supplemented through Tetra Pak’s global market operations.
