From Farm to Table: The Journey of Cheese and Butter Production

Hello cheese and butter lovers! In today's blog post, we will take a look at the journey of cheese and butter production. We will discover how both delicious products come from the farm to our tables. If you are ready, let's start this enjoyable journey.

Collection of Milk: Cheese and butter production begins with the collection of healthy and high quality milk. Milk is usually milked from farms and transported to processing facilities. At this stage, hygiene standards are observed and cooling systems are used to maintain milk quality.

Processing and Fermentation: Collected milk goes through various processes in processing facilities to produce cheese and oil. For cheese production, milk is first pasteurized and then starter cultures are added and left to ferment. During this process, the acidic structure of the milk changes and the microorganisms that create the characteristic flavors of the cheese develop.

Cheese Production: Fermented milk becomes ready for cheese production. The milk is coagulated using coagulation agents and then curdled. The cut curds are pressed to remove the cheese's water and left for the ripening process. During this time, the cheese's distinctive aroma and texture develops.

Ripening and Packaging: Cheeses are kept in ripening rooms for a certain period of time. During this time, the flavors of the cheeses develop and their characteristic features emerge. At the end of the ripening process, the cheeses are packaged and ready to be sent to the shelves.

Oil Production: Oil production is generally carried out as vegetable oil or olive oil. Vegetable oils are extracted from the seeds or fruits of plants and refined in processing plants. Olive oil is obtained by crushing and squeezing olives. Oils are purified and packaged through special processing processes and filtration methods.

Distribution and Consumption: Cheese and oils are sent from production facilities to distributors and stores. They go through quality control processes before reaching consumers. Finally, it takes its place on the tables of us cheese and butter lovers and is consumed with pleasure.
