Stand B40, PPMA Show 2021, 28-30 September, NEC, Birmingham
Processing and dairy visitors to PPMA Show 2021 will have a rare chance to see a complete mozzarella ball processing line on AVE UK’s stand (B40). Comprising six individual systems including an automatic coagulation vat, drainage trolley, whey recovery system, cradle coagulation vat, ricotta trolleys and salting cheese vats, this will be the ONLY opportunity to see the line in its entirety before it is delivered to London-based Italian mozzarella manufacturers, Fratelli Amodio, straight after the show.
This cutting-edge processing line has been designed to recreate the high-spec taste, presentation and texture of traditional Italian mozzarella within a modern UK setting. “Innovation doesn’t have to mean creating a new technique – for this project, it was essential that our solution respects and reproduces the traditional methods of mozzarella making to replicate the true flavours of Italy right here in the UK, while also incorporating the safety, efficiency and reliability requested by today’s market. It’s about cutting cost and waste, not taste and quality,” says Steve Bradley, AVE UK’s Sales Director.
As with all dairy manufacturing, it was also imperative that the mozzarella line adheres to the strictest standards of hygiene to avoid contamination and preserve the product’s shelf life. Like AVE’s entire dairy range, the solution for Fratelli Amodio is ultra-clean and manufactured with food-grade stainless steel to ensure it can withstand even the most robust cleaning and washdown regimes, maintaining product integrity and protecting consumers and brand.
In addition, as mozzarella is an artisan product with a high intrinsic value, the new processing line will help to minimise wastage during production, boosting profitability. Designed to produce mozzarella, it is also suitable for other speciality Italian cheeses such as stracchino, montasio, asiago and caciocavallo, as well as the popular and on-trend buratta.
Steve adds: “As part of the Della Toffola Group, AVE combines 60 years’ experience in the dairy sector with the latest smart technology to deliver ultra-hygienic, cutting-edge processing solutions to dairy business of all sizes. For Fratelli Amodio, we have created a mozzarella processing line that uses advanced innovation to achieve the traditional taste of Italy. We look forward to showcasing this unique solution to visitors to our stand.”
