How to produce high quality UHT dairy products in a more efficient way?

Do you want to produce high quality UHT white milk, lactose reduced UHT milk, enriched or flavoured UHT milk but in a much more efficient way? Dairies can gain significant savings in the production of a wide range of UHT products by moving away from the conventional batch to a more continuous process. New technologies make this move possible and is very efficient both from an operational cost and environmental impact point of view. Cost savings in the UHT process of up to 50% have been measured!
