Skimmed milk powders for demanding applications
Uelzena has been producing milk powders for more than 60 years. Milk, the raw material for the powders, is sourced regionally from (member) dairies in Northern Germany and delivered directly to our Uelzen and Neumünster sites. This ensures short transportation routes and reliable availability of the raw material. Because we know precisely where our milk is coming from our customers from the global chocolate, confectionery and food industries can be confident about the quality of our products.
Currently our product range consists of Low Heat and Medium Heat skimmed milk powder as well as buttermilk powder. We focus a lot of attention on the continuous optimization of the quality of our milk powders, for example in terms of the degree of denaturation, solubility, low dust properties, particle size and blending behavior, because our customers have highly specific requirements for further processing in their production plants.
Our minimally heated and almost non-denatured Low Heat skimmed milk powder for example is optimally suited for the recombination of milk and its further processing into yoghurt and cheese. Other food manufacturers value the fine taste and easy processing of our skimmed milk and buttermilk powders into chocolate and confectionery products and baked goods.
Our annual processing capacity is up to 75,000 tons of skimmed milk. No matter whether the products are made in our Uelzen site or in our new production site in Neumuenster where we operate one of the largest and most advanced spraying towers in Europe within the scope of a joint venture – our objective is to deliver the best possible product quality. The production at both sites follows the highest technical and hygienic standards, is certified and strictly monitored by our quality management system. Our high quality standards have been continuously confirmed by numerous successful audits performed by global food companies.
