Production of yoghurt: after exiting the pasteurizer the milk is fed into the Maturing/Fermenting Unit. This heat treatment eliminates principally all the pathogenic flora. The contents are then cooled and the ferments or ‘starters’ are added.
To make liquid yoghurt incubation is carried out in the Maturing unit with mixing and temperature control until the process of fermentation has finished. It is then cooled and packaged.
To make firm-type yoghurt packaging is carried out before incubation. It is then placed in a heated store-room for maturing and then cooled afterwards in a refrigerated store-room.
Butter making: the elaboration of butter starts with the cream obtained from the process of skimming or standardisation of the milk. The cream is cooled and stored in the Fermenting Unit in a similar way to that of yoghurt.
