Taking mozzarella to new heights

Date: 03.02.2022Source: Milcobel

Milcobel´s mozzarella is a prime ingredient for many pizza producers, fast food chains and processors. In addition, our cheeses are first choice among shredders and distributors to the food service business. According to Milcobel, what makes their mozzarella so unique is the perfect balance between texture, stretch and the way it melts and blisters.

Belgian mozzarella history is made by Milcobel. From humble beginnings in 1964 when a first cheddar production line became operational, grew a centralised cheese production site in Langemark with two production lines, focusing 100% on mozzarella production since 2017, with an annual output in excess of 60,000 tonnes. Milcobel mozzarella is made from 100% cow´s milk and available in many formats and specifications, tailored to clients´ requirements. Recently the company complemented its extensive product portfolio with the acquisition of Kaasbrik, a well-known and valued player in the shredded cheese sector.

While mozzarella may not be the most used ingredient cheese in Europe, Milcobel are looking to the East for novel applications and promising avenues for future development. Young and increasingly affluent generations drive the growth of mozzarella in Asia.

Milcobel’ experienced R&D team is ready to take up this challenge and the planned innovation centre at the Langemark site will enhance the development of new applications to the benefit of customers around the globe.  For more visit Gulfood 2022, hall 1 Stand E1-8 or Milcobel.com
