Technology

People drink milk for more than 7,000 years. Drinking milk was natural, popular and important at all times. After all, milk is not only a tasty and nutritious drink, but also an important source of calcium, phosphorus, vitamins A, B1, B2, D and other microelements.

Nowadays, when people are more demanding in respect of the products they consume, Loostdorf constantly searches for and introduces food innovations ensuring the high quality of its dairy products. This is confirmed by the following facts:

GUARANTEED SAFETY AND QUALITY

The Loostdorf plant has been certified as compliant with the international food quality (DSTU ISO 9001) and safety management (DSTU ISO 22000) standards.

HIGH CAPACITY AND CONTEMPORARY PRODUCTION

Loostdorf plant processes 450 tons of milk every day. Such production capacity is ensured by the modern hi-tech world-class equipment. Dairy products are produced in a protected environment under automated control without any people’s access.

RELIABLE RAW MILK SUPPLIERS

Loostdorf products are made only of high-quality raw milk (of extra, high and first grade) from the best farms of Podillia and Polissia. These farms dispose raw milk quality control points and have installed more than 200 industrial refrigerators. The milk supplied by farms is being quality-tested on ongoing basis. Upon testing, the raw milk is being cooled immediately, which allows to secure its natural values and avoid formation of harmful bacteria.

SPECIAL PURPOSE VEHICLE FLEET

Loostdorf's own special purpose vehicles with modern equipment allow to deliver fresh and high-quality raw milk to the production facilities within two hours, and there this milk becomes your favorite dairy products.

UNCOMPROMISING QUALITY

The quality of Loostdorf products is checked at every stage of production, starting with testing raw milk supplied by farmers and ending with testing the finished products. The raw milk that does not meet the Loostdorf’s quality and composition requirements is returned to the supplier and is not used as it can cause a stop of operation of the company’s hi-tech equipment.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES

In dairy production Loostdorf uses innovative technologies of raw milk processing. Among those, there are two types of ultrapasteurization: indirect heating and steam processing. These technologies allow clearing raw milk from harmful bacteria in a careful way and with maximum efficiency, which secures the natural nutritional values of milk.

NATURAL INGREDIENTS

The Loostdorf dairy products consist not only of high-quality milk, but also of other natural ingredients, such as different flavor fillings and fermentation starters of pure cultures of lactic acid bacteria from the best suppliers of the dairy market. In addition, our products do not contain GMOs. They are absolutely safe and healthy.

RELIABLE PACKAGING

Loostdorf uses the best packaging solutions for its dairy products. Most of the products are packed in convenient and eco-friendly Tetra Pak packaging, which protects them from the negative influence of the environment and preserves their freshness, quality and wonderful taste for a long time.

The primary goal of any contemporary responsible dairy producer is to provide consumers with safe, high-quality, tasty, nutritious and healthy products.

Implementation of this important mission is only possible provided that the company deploys modern high-tech innovations and advanced production technologies.

Ultra-high temperature (UHT) treatment: ultrapasteurization

Loostdorf uses the innovative technology of ultra-high temperature (UHT) treatment. Raw milk is treated by the temperature of 137 °C for from 2 to 4 seconds and then is quickly cooled down to the temperature of 25 °C.

This modern technology allows to kill all pathogenic bacteria and at the same time preserve the nutrition value of milk – protein, vitamins and microelements. After such treatment UHT dairy products can be stored in closed packaging for up to six months.

After being heat-treated, the milk is packed in the Tetra Pak aseptic packaging by automated equipment in the protected environment. The packaging consists of six different layers of carton, polyethylene and foil. Such packaging protects the product from the effects of air and light, which can cause fast souring of milk.

Steam processing

Steam processing is another innovation that Loostdorf uses when preparing raw milk for production. Steam is injected into raw milk under high pressure (4 bars), and the product temperature raises to 140 °C. After a few seconds, the milk is quickly cooled down to 20˚C in the absence of air and light.

This allows to kill inimical bacteria, while preserving the nutrition value of milk. The technology also ensures the delicate taste with no “boiled milk” flavor.

Our highly qualified and experienced professionals are constantly in search of new and improved milk processing technologies. Therefore, consumers can always be sure of the excellent quality of all Loostdorf products!
