Danlac also supplies cheesemaking equipment for dairy processors. We help manufacturers to acquire appropriate cheesemaking equipment and can also become involved in an advisory capacity while consulting on the manufacturing of cheese and other dairy products. We specialise in HTST (plate pasteurise), cheese vats and tools for making cheese. Among the products we sell are thermometers, batch pasteurises, cheese cutters, curd knives, leak detector outlet valves, prepressing vats, scoops, shovels, steam heated cheese vats, hot water cheese vats, and trolley tables.
Our global suppliers provide quality dairy ingredients and dairy processing equipment. Ingredients include bacteria cultures, media, and enzymes (rennet, lipase, protease etc.). The equipment we stock is predominantly pasteurisers (batch & HTST.) and cheesemaking equipment (vats, tools, etc.), but we can also accommodate special requests. Danlac supplies dairy processing consulting services to cheese plants/makers who process speciality cheeses such as feta, gouda, and havarti.
Danlac, under the brand "Bionic", also caters to the 'at home' clientele who are making dairy products and cheese, in their homes. These products are also available for private labelling to individuals and companies that distribute to health food sections. Our site includes a recipe page, some of which are suitable for making products in the home. Our newsletter subscription can also supply advice.
We now have new line of dairy enzymes under the Renco brand. These dairy enzymes includes lipases (goat kid, lamb, and calf) and proteinases used in many cheeses. They can be ordered through our online store.
Interra's leadership position in trade-management and logistics technology is the result of a 25 year commitment from our directors to supply-chain efficiency and information accuracy. However, what keeps our course and guides this organization is a simple promise: "Our word is our ink - it's the bond with our suppliers and customers." With this guiding principle as the compass, we work with customers and suppliers who share in this business ethic.
