Dry-aseptic PET-Lines for Gropper
Last year, Gropper celebrated its 90th anniversary. The company has grown considerably since its founding: the erstwhile cheese maker is now a mid-sized enterprise producing private-label dairy products, not-from-concentrate (NFC) juices, smoothies, and bottled water for customers across Europe. Gropper now processes around 350 million litres of milk a year. Originally an all-dairy operation, Gropper now also produces juice, smoothies, and bottled water. The company’s spirit of innovation is strong
Spitz – simply unequalled
From sliced bread and BBQ sauces all the way through to beverages – when you browse the shelves in Austrian supermarkets, then you’ll find Spitz everywhere you look. The company is a sort of hidden champion, since it produces not only numerous brands of its own but also a huge array of dealer’s brands for food and beverage retailers. The demand for energy drinks, juices and ice tea, in particular, is unbroken. Which is precisely why the company has now invested in a new dry-aseptic line from Krones.
Four new PET lines for Britvic and a complete high-bay warehouse
Clive Hooper, Chief Supply Chain Officer at Britvic, has a clearly defined goal: “Britvic is already one of the leading soft-drinks producers in Europe. We want to progress, and play in the premier league on the global stage as well.” In order to achieve this, about five years ago the company decided to optimise its distribution chain and at the same time invest in its production capabilities.
Aseptic premiere for milk at Pyatigorskiy
In 2007, Vladimir Kayshev took over Pyatigorskiy Dairy, formerly a state-run operation dating back to the 1980s. The equipment was in dire need of upgrading and was capable of processing only 20 metric tons of raw milk per day. Four years later, Kayshev decided to invest heavily in the plant and gradually transform it into a state-of-the-art dairy.
