Buhler to design packaging system in Brazil

08-02-2007 | |

Alltech has hired Buhler to design and install a fully automated packaging system for its plant in Brazil. The new system will be built using stainless steel to create a true food grade quality packaging system.

Four dryers will feed eight individual silos that will allow Alltech to have
complete flexibility in packaging the full line of products. From the eight
silos product will be gravity fed to a state of the art carousal packaging
system that will have the ability to fill and seal bags at rate of 10 bags a
minute. The project is to start immediately and will be complete in 12
months.

Largest yeast factory
The
plant, which is located in Vale do Ivaí, Parana, was opened in 2005 and is the
world’s largest yeast
factory

with the capacity to produce up to 50,000 tonnes of yeast a year.
It is surrounded by sugar cane plantations and is designed to use almost 100% of
renewable raw materials, which are sourced locally. Sugar cane is the primary
source for fermentation and the manufacturing of Alltech’s natural products.
