Contract manufacturing

Working for our customers

Spray drying and the processing of milk fats have been the core business of Uelzena for many decades. Using our experience, expertise and the latest technology, we turn our customers’ raw materials into tailor-made ingredients and products.

We have many years of expert know-how as well as a comprehensive technology portfolio available at the various production sites of the Uelzena Group. We operate advanced spraying towers and apply milk fat fractionating technology which is unique in Germany. These are the basic factors for the development of individual production processes for each customer request.

Spray drying: solving complex challenges

We dry plant colors and flavors as well as vitamins, minerals, vegetable extracts, spices and additives. Our special expertise is the development, control and systematization of production processes that match the individual drying project at its best. This also applies to difficult production processes such as the drying of susceptible natural materials, suspensions and emulsions. We have several differently sized spraying towers available at our Uelzen site which can be operated with different spraying technologies. The production of dry mixes completes our service range.

Milk fats: Expert knowledge, experience and technological expertise

On behalf of our customers, we process milk fat at our three sites in Uelzen, Bismark and Warmsen. We produce butter and concentrated butter and we standardize milk and cream products. Assisted by patented physical processes, we are also able to fractionate and decolorize milk fat or remove cholesterol upon request.  

Safe production on behalf of our customers

We have a comprehensive quality management system in place at all of our sites. Apart from being frequently certified according to the most important national and international schemes including ISO and IFS, we also pass demanding audits conducted by our customers on a regular basis. For several products and processes, we have also been approved according to organics, kosher and halal rules.
