The world’s largest fresh milk dairy has installed eight high-speed induction cap sealers to its production line in order to provide leak prevention and ensure product freshness.
Arla Foods’ £150 million mega-dairy site based in Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, processes 1.5 million bottles of milk every day, and relies on Enercon Industries’ high-speed induction cap sealers to hermetically seal its bottles.
Richard Bull, Managing Director of Enercon Industries, said: “The British milk industry has been benefiting from the use of induction cap sealing for over 20 years.
“From small businesses to large dairy plants, many manufacturers across the country provide hermetic seals to their containers with induction technology, to prevent leaks and maintain product freshness.
“Having supplied Arla for many years in their dairies across the UK, I believe it is a testament to the quality of Enercon’s equipment and service that this new super site has continued to work with our world leading cap sealing technology.”
Arla uses a specialist sensing system, which was custom designed by Enercon Industries for this particular process, allowing the manufacturer to continuously seal containers of different volumes while avoiding manual intervention.
Talking about Arla’s use of innovative solutions and machinery, Peter Lauritzen, CEO of Arla Foods UK, said: “The size and scale of our new dairy reinforces Arla’s leadership within the UK dairy industry and we have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to next generation fresh milk processing.
“Aylesbury has taken advantage of previously untapped technologies.”
Arla is a global dairy company and a cooperative owned by 12,600 dairy farmers, circa 2,800 of whom are British. Arla is the largest dairy company in the UK and is home to leading dairy brands Anchor, Cravendale and Lurpak. It processes 3.5 billion litres of milk a year from British farms into a full range of dairy products.
