Locally Made Equipment Saves Dairy Industry

The locally fabricated milk processing equipment have helped the Philippine Dairy Industry save a lot. Dairy farmers no longer need to import batch pasteurizer, milk blender, and even milk cans.

According to Engr. Julius Sante, an experience dairy engineer, the said equipment were made of stainless steel which are food grade and made to satisfy the standards set by Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD) in dairy processing. He further stressed that the equipment are efficiently designed to lower the cost of processing and can be repaired by local technicians.

The equipment he designed were installed at Pangantucan, Maramag, Kalilangan (PAMAKA) Farmers Dairy Cooperative based in Pangantucan, Bukidnon. The said equipment were funded by Mindanao Sustainable Settlement Area Development (MinSSAD) project of the Department of Agrarian Reform. This project would be of great help in the development of the dairy industry. Other government agencies helping the project include: National Dairy Authority, Department of Trade and Industry, Central Mindanao University, Philippine Carabao Center- CMU, Cooperative Development Authority, and the Local Government Units of Pangantucan, Maramag, and Kalilangan.

Such equipment are designed to suit the production capacity of the farm.
