From the farm to the end product

Milk

From the raw material milk, the KRÜGER GROUP produces many high-quality products: from cappuccino to chocolate, from ready-to-drink products to special milk powders for baby food. We attach immense importance to first-class quality.

It all starts with our regional contract farmers or the dairy cows of the approximately 100 contract farmers who supply us with around one million liters of milk every day. Transportation to our subsidiary Milchwerke Mittelelbe is carried out in modern liquid transportation trucks and is subject to the highest hygiene standards.

We pay strict attention to a smooth, efficient supply chain from raw material to end product. With a sensitive raw material such as milk, two things are crucial: functioning logistics and production capacities adapted to the quantity to be processed. By seamlessly interlocking our production chain, we ensure fast and reliable processing and delivery to our customers.

In state-of-the-art production facilities, the milk is processed within a few hours of delivery. Dried milk powder, milk derivatives, and special powders for sweeteners, baby food, or basic components for further processing are produced in 14 state-of-the-art spray drying towers.

The semi-finished products made from the milk are also used by other subsidiaries of the KRÜGER GROUP: in KRÜGER Cappuccino, K‑fee milk capsules, chocolate products, and in baby food.

In our Lactoland dry milk plant, we produce specially tailored milk powders from the high-quality dry milk powders – in complex, innovative mixing processes: for further processing into chocolate, ice cream, and other specialties as well as for functional mixtures to stabilize cheese and yogurt. In the Lactoland laboratory, almost all test procedures can be mapped internally. This is how we ensure the perfect quality of our products at all times.
