Technology and know-how
Uelzena milk-based ingredients
For decades, large branded manufacturers of confectionery products, baked goods, ice cream and delicatessen have been relying on milk-based ingredients supplied by Uelzena. Our clients are companies from the food processing and food ingredients industries as well as traders in raw materials.
Milk ingredients from the milk specialist
Being a specialist in milk, we focus on the product groups of milk powder, milk fat and other milk products including sweet condensed milk, cream and yoghurt products which we market through the company-wide division Uelzena Ingredients. This comprises three production sites of the Uelzena Group in Uelzen, Bismark and Warmsen as well as a joint venture in Neumuenster. We sell and distribute our range of ingredients together with Uelzena eG and WS Warmsener Spezialitäten GmbH. As a dairy cooperative, we source the majority of our raw material milk from our own contract milk producers in Northern Germany.
Processing of milk fat for our customers
Our expert knowledge, which is available at all production sites, has been acquired over many years and we apply a comprehensive range of technologies to the processing of milk and milk fats. We make use of these resources not just for our own products but we also act as a service provider for the contract processing of milk-based raw materials supplied by our customers; this includes the contract manufacturing of butterfat or the standardization of cream. Our customers place their raw material in safe hands with us. With the help of special technologies we can also fractionate or decolorize milk fat if required.
Expert in spray drying on a contract basis
Our second core competency is the spray drying of products from various product groups such as natural colors, tea extracts, protein hydrolysates, flavors, vitamins and minerals which we process as a contract manufacturer for the food and ingredients industries. At our site in Uelzen, we operate various different spraying towers for that purpose. Since decades, customers from all over the world make use of our technological and problem solving competency for spray dried products. Today we are considered to be one of the leading specialists within the industry.
