EkoNiva fills milk in PET containers
The MosMedynagroprom plant in Medyn near Kaluga, Russia, was built ten years ago to supply schools in Moscow with UHT milk and cheese, but it never reached capacity. EkoNiva took over the plant in 2017 and has been updating its technology and hygiene to the latest state of the art. “The plant originally produced up to 90 percent of its output volume as UHT milk products. Now we are switching production over to a traditional range of pasteurized products: milk, fermented dairy products, cottage cheese, yoghurt smoothies,” explains Vadim Shevelev, project manager for EkoNiva.
