The Swiss cheese manufacturer Imlig relies on cutting technology from holac. The company, based in Oberriet (Canton St. Gallen), has just installed a new high-performance machine from the Baden-Württemberg based company cutting specialist into their line operation. For Imlig, the focus was on being able to process a wide range of different types of cheese with a single machine. The high demands on hygiene were also decisive in the company choosing for holac.

The new cutting machine is an integral part of the production line. Imlig specialises in large industry packs for hotels, restaurants and canteens, in addition to medium and smaller packs for discount. Imlig produces a wide range of different types of cheese – including semi-hard cheese, grated cheese, raclette cheese and fondue cheese. The cutting machine had to be adaptable to process complete blocks with varying consistencies and fat contents.

Said Urs Imlig, CEO, Imlig: “With this machine, holac has helped us to close a very important gap in our product range.” 

Imlig was also convinced of the ease of use and hygiene: “We have also found that the machine is very easy to dismantle, clean and re-assemble, which is vital for the production of food.”

The cheese manufacturer Imlig focuses on the quality and reliability of the systems: over 60 employees work in the company, some of whom work in three shifts. Up to 1,000 tons of cheese ripen in the fully automated warehouse, 50 percent of which is exported.

Daniela Pröll, Marketing Manager at holac, commented: “Swiss cheese is one of the best in the world. We are pleased that our machine meets the high-quality requirements of this world-wide manufacturer.”
