This profile envisages the establishment of a plant that produces Yoghurt generically known as cultured milk as they all derive from the action of bacteria on all or part of the Lactose to produce Lactic acid, carbon dioxide acetic acid, diacetyl, acetaldehyde and several other components that give the products the characteristic of fresh taste and smell.
This plant will be established on the premise that at least 4,000 litres of yoghurt will be produced per day leading to 1,248,000 litres
Yoghurt is made through the process of fermenting milk by the addition of bacteria, stabilizers, flavours and colour. The milk may be whole full fat, semi skimmed or low fat skimmed depending on the type of yoghurt you intend to make. It is normal in commercial yoghurt production to homogenise the milk prior to its fermentation.
The major raw materials used to make yoghurt include: Milk, Milk powder, Stabilizers, Sugar, Flavour, color and lactic cultured.
The major Equipment needed in the making of yoghurt includes: Packaging machine, Milk tanks, & Refrigerators. Capital Investment
