Molodechno Dairy Plant, OJSC

Company Presentation

The history of Molodechno Dairy Plant, OJSC starts from the date of the foundation of Molodechno Urban Dairy Plant, which was founded in 1945. In the year 1971 several plant's buildings were put into operation with a cheese-making workshop in a newly constructed building. The plant's capacity was 60 tons of milk to be processed per shift.

Since 1991, the company packed products into the Finnpack plastic bags. In 2000, machines were installed for packing milk into the Pure-Pak package. In 1995, the Molodechno Dairy Plant commissioned a line for chocolate-coated cream cheese bars production with a capacity of 1.5 tons per shift. In the year 2000, the release of live-culture yogurt with fruit fillers was mastered.

In 2005, the company commissioned a line for technical casein production. Technical casein production was arranged due to the need to process skimmed milk directly at the enterprise, in order to minimize the processing costs of raw materials, vary the ways of dairy raw materials processing, and reduce raw materials delivery to other enterprises.

Until March 2009, Molodechno Gormolzavod, OJSC was under the regional ownership of the Minsk Regional Executive Committee.
