Gain tighter control of your cheese make process
Our cheese make sheet software is unique; it manages all the ingredients that are going into the vat and the conditions of the make, which ultimately determines the quality of the cheese at the block level.
SI’s cheese make software records and analyses conditions – from suppliers, the vat, temperatures, moisture, through to PH levels – to hone in on best conditions to maximise cheese quality. The dairy side of the solution manages the entire process – from milk in, raw materials in, cheese making at vat stages, through to blocks out and ready for storage.
“I believe that all UK cheese processors would benefit from having an automated data capture system in place to manage the cheese make element of the process” Rob Stephens, Managing Director, SI Food Software.
Automate your cheese make process pick ups
Our cheese make sheet software automatically picks up every stage of the process in real-time, including volume of milk in the vats, the milk density, the amount of fat within it, and checks on salt content.
At a detail level, we’ve automated the process pick ups within the software. For instance, the application takes the temperature straight from dairy system rather than relying on someone manually reading from a dial and keying in the data; it records the temperature milk is heated to and the time before rennet is added; and it captures the elapsed time for heating before it’s moved on to the next stage of the process. And for those elements that still need to be keyed back in, we’ve built the steps into the cheese make sheet process to ensure that information is recorded in real-time rather than retrospectively.
