To be able to process whey from the new Mozzarella production at Royal A-ware in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, Fonterra’s European plant that is located right beside the A-ware cheese factory had to increase capacities. With a € 10 Mio. investment, a new building was erected on top of the existing production which now houses a membrane filtration plant supplied by ALPMA/LTH.

IDM had the exclusive chance to visit the new premises. Fonterra and Royal A-ware have been partnering in whey utilization since 2015 in the industrial estate of Heerenveen. Initially, this agreement covered whey from semi-hard cheese making. When Royal A-ware decided to enter the growing Mozzarella market, large-style of manufacturing capacity, Fonterra simply had to pull right away to cope with a massive flow of new whey.
