How to make Danone yogurt
• How to make Danone yogurt
I remember very well the first store Danone, which opened in 1992 at Tver. Then it was the same miracle, like McDonald's, which stood for several hours in the queue. The store went to take a look at the unusual items, photographed against the backdrop of the famous clock and, of course, buy a delicious yogurt (the most delicious chocolate was). Now the store unfortunately closed, and Danone yogurts you can buy in any store of the country.
Danone has recently invited a group of bloggers at its plant in the Chekhov district, Moscow region, to show how milk turns everyone's favorite yogurt. The plant was built in 2000 and is considered the most modern and powerful among all Danone companies in the world! Every year produces around 300,000 tonnes of fresh dairy products.
Yogurt begins with a cow! It's amazing, right? On the yoghurt milk factory it comes with 20 different farms located near the plant. Sami farm Danone does not belong, but they are very carefully monitor the quality of milk. We were shown one of them.
Cows seemingly happy, satisfied and well-fed. Of them we should get a good steak :)
Names of cows not only numbers. But the cow nose pattern is unique, like fingerprints in humans.
It turns out that cows More like winter than summer. -10 degrees - their favorite temperature. And you know how much sleep a cow? You'll never guess! Cow sleeping only a few minutes a day! 10-15 minutes and the procedure! I'd like to be sometimes a cow
This is a special thing for manure. It is constantly moving and the barn shoveling manure into a special hole.
The calves are kept separate in the manger. Orphan growing up without parents and do not know a mother's love. This does not prevent them to be curious, to play with the visitors and to be frightened any rustle.
By the way, just now thinking, how clean the manure from calves? Do not change the straw every day.
Several times a day the cows go to be milked. Everything happens almost automatically. Milkmaids only wash the udder and the milking machine hooked.
Fresh milk is cooled down to 3-4 degrees
Then milk is being taken to the yoghurt factory.
On the acceptance of milk have a laboratory where taking samples and check that the milk was all right. If the milk discover something nasty, then the entire batch is sent back to the farm.
industrial accidents of all time was without exception, the information on them hanging on the stands. Generally, security in the factory all right. All employees are required to wear gowns, hats and footwear. Do not wear any jewelery and watches. Before entering all necessary washed and then disinfected hands. I was put on the protective cap, it turned out very funny, but all the pictures and then classified.
The corridors are like little streets. There are crossings, sidewalks and protective bumpers remain empty tram is full of happiness.
Here is yogurt.
As it happens, it seems to me, no one knows. Understand this web of pipes random person is impossible.
Today, this factory produced yoghurts and curds "Danone", "Activia" of Actimel, "Rastishka", "Danissimo", and others throughout the country, plus the export to the CIS countries.
Some pipes were signed. By the way, for the production used artesian water from their own wells.
Manage it all from your computer. In general, people in the factory is almost not be found - all production is automated as much as possible. I think 10 years from now people do disappear from the factories and all will be done by robots.
And here is the cup is filled with yoghurt and packed in this machine. The cups are made from food grade plastic color.
In the first half cups stamped, in the second they are filled with yogurt and closed. It is important that all done in one place, this eliminates the ingress of foreign particles and bacteria in yogurt.
By the way, each employee of the plant once a week give a box of yogurt for the whole family. Home injustice lies in the fact that the issue is the product that you're doing. Therefore, some families only eat Marshmallow Froot Loops, while others only drink Actimel.
The car on pouring Danissimo.
And this is a huge pots of jam. They come from another plant, and added to the yogurt. In the foreground, a 900-pound tank of chocolate. That would put this into the kitchen!
There is bottled Marshmallow Froot Loops.
A man watches the robots work!
And here is the finished yogurt.
In each country different flavors of yogurt. For example, the French love the lemon yogurt, and we he went. I also love the lemon, but for me its production run until abandoned.
C of each batch is left samples and store them in special rooms with different temperatures. If you suddenly come to light marriage, the whole batch recall. But this has not happened. By the way, if you suddenly will fall defective yogurt, you can call a special phone and it will change to normal.
In 1998, Danone was the first company in Russia to start production of drinking yoghurt.
At the end of yogurts are packed in boxes ...
And transported to the warehouse!
And then to the store!
