Coega Dairy
Where Technology Meets Ecology

Technology Meets Ecology

At Coega Dairy, our green technology ensures the production of dairy products that are of exceptional quality. Our advanced “OneStep” technology allows us substantial savings in terms of energy and water consumption and improved production efficiencies with less impact on the environment.

Our UHT (ultra-high temperature) milk processing plant’s technology not only consumes less energy, but also less water, fewer chemicals and it consists of high production filling lines with very low wastage rates. 

We were the first dairy company in South Africa to receive the FSSC (Food Safety System Certification) 22000 certification – this covered Interactive Communication System Management and Hazard Control.

The Processing Plant

Our processing plant proudly does the following:

  • Consumes up to 50% less energy, water and chemicals.
  • Causes 50% less effluent, of which 65% is recycled.
  • Reduces CO2 emission by 40%, which results in a much lower carbon footprint compared to traditional dairy plants.
  • Includes new green technology that delivers excellent product quality and enhanced taste profiles.

As the protection of the environment is so important to us, we took the utmost care when building our factory at Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ), where the conditions are most favourable. When our factory was built, we made sure to move all indigenous plants, small animals and insects to a safe location where they could thrive in their natural habitat.

Each step of the process was controlled, from the factory design to the installation of our green OneStep technology.

Coega Dairy complies with the international food safety regulations and standards. Our FSSC 22000 certificate given to us is internationally recognised and the system includes ISO 22000:2005, ISO/TS 22002-1:2009, as well as FSSC 22000 requirements. To top it all off, our factory is Kosher and Halaal certified.

To our consumers, this simply means that you’ll get value for your money and excellent quality whenever you buy a Coega Dairy product!

Our Butter Factory

On 1 April 2012, production on Coega Dairy’s butter factory began. As we produce quality dairy products, we decided to build our butter factory to supply the demand for wholesome butter from pasture-fed cows.

The investment included equipment, crystallisation tanks and installation costs. The equipment included a butter churn and a standard butter pack machine to pack the butter into its greaseproof packaging.

The addition of our butter factory resulted in us being able to employ more staff members; and thus, creating more job opportunities.
