Dairy and Egg Products

The Dairy industry produces a variety of different milk products, which includes milk drinks, cream, yogurt, mousses, all types of cheese, butter, dips, and fresh and frozen desserts, which includes ice cream. It also includes eggs, and egg products such as mayonnaise and meringues. 

Challenges in this Sector

Some challenges found within this sector include:

  • Large amount of processing and production of the food product, which increase the chance of stainless steel contamination caused by processing and packaging machine failure
  • Use of foil top packaging with yogurts for freshness and quality
  • Unwanted holes in cheese, which are formed during the cheese making process
  • Cold, wet and harsh high-care environments, where hygiene, cleanliness and sanitation are of prime importance
  • Increase in private label manufacture, requiring food manufacturers to be serving multiple retailers with multiple products
  • Lightweight chilled desserts, which provide complex handling during production
