A high-tech ultrafiltration unit has been installed in the whey processing section. It will allow the processing of serum, obtained during the manufacture of cheese, in a concentrate of whey proteins. The production capacity of the new equipment will be ten tons of dry whey protein concentrate per day. 

Neil Starrock, the president of PepsiCo’s business in Russia, said: “The development of whey processing is an important technological solution that will contribute to the expansion of waste-free production in the enterprise. 

“It will allow [us] to increase the life cycle of dairy raw materials and will make it possible to use products obtained as a result of processing whey for the production of new products both inside the company and in other food industries. 

“The resulting whey protein concentrate can be used for the production of modern dairy and functional products – yogurt, sports nutrition and others.”

The treatment facilities will reduce the “environmental burden of the enterprise on the sewerage network of the city of Rubtsovsk” and thereby improve the quality of life of citizens, Starrock said.

The Rubtsovsk dairy plant has produced Lambert brand cheese for the last 15 years.
