Welcome To Ehrmann Yogurt Factory

Posted on February 1, 2012 by

Milk products are extremely popular in Russia. Kefir, ryazhenka and sour cream are considered to be healthy food.  Not long ago, a new product appeared in the list – yogurt. To see which yogurt they eat in Russia, we are heading to Ehrmann company producing ‘Ermighurt’, ‘Prebiotic’, ‘Ermic’, etc.

Alois Ehrmann launched his company in Germany in 1920. It was the first company to produce yogurt containing pieces of real fruits which caused a stir among customers. Today, it is the most technically advanced yogurt factory in Germany. It began exporting its produce to Russia in 1997 and when its turnover reached 100 million German marks, the owners of the company decided to build a yogurt factory in Russia too. The factory opened in 2000 in Ramensky District, the Moscow Region. Today it produces a variety of yogurts and yogurt products such as sour cream, cottage cheese, puddings, desserts, milk shakes and yogurt drinks.

A yogurt factory needs a lot of milk. They deliver milk to the factory from several regions of the country such as the Moscow Region, the Smolensk Region, the Vladimir Region, the Ryazan Region.

The milk tanker you see in the photo has brought about 20 tons of milk. Each milk tanker is equipped with a computer that makes accounting, prints bills and controls the temperature inside.

The factory needs about 215 tons of milk daily.

They test their milk before accepting it.

“Microbiological Laboratory”.

The production laboratory includes two departments, microbiological and physicochemical. In these departments, they examine raw produce (milk, ingredients), semi-finished products and finished products to make sure they are safe and of high quality.

A density test.

They store their refrigerated and filtered milk in these huge stainless steel reservoirs.

It should be sterile at the factory so they ask all visitors to put on a special overall, hat, shoes, put off their watches, rings and bracelets, and disinfect their hands.

The factory is a combination of pipes, sensors, wires and cables and it looks really impressing. Besides, they try to eliminate any contact between ingredients and environment or people which prolongs the shelf life of their yogurts.

    Very similar to where I work, except for the production lines. Most of the 2.5 million kilos of milk we process a day, goes to liquid sales of cream and condensed milk, the rest is made into butter, or milk powder. Cool post!
