PLF International has secured an order to supply a complete turnkey canning line that forms the heart of a brand new €161 million Synutra International drying, mixing and packaging facility in Carhaix-Plouger, France.

The equipment being supplied includes a PLF high speed rotary vacuum powder filling machine, pre-gassing technology and a PLF high speed laser coding system.

The new facility is a result of a recent partnership between Sodiaal, the third largest European milk co-operative, and Synutra, a leading manufacturer and marketer of powdered formula products in China. Synutra International is a leading infant formula company in China, which focuses on selling premium infant formula products, which are supplemented by more affordable infant formulas targeting the mass market, as well as other nutritional products and ingredients.

The new 200,000 square metre French facility will manufacture powdered milk and fat-enriched demineralised whey for the needs of Synutra, with impressive annual production capacities of 90,000 tons in spray drying and 60,000 tons in mixing and packaging once it opens at the end of 2015.

Mark Emond, Managing Director for PLF International, says: “We are incredibly proud to be part of this project, which is set to become one of the finest facilities for infant powder milk production in the world. Our bespoke packaging machinery will be key to the plant’s output and we are really looking forward to delivering the equipment later this year and seeing it in action in 2016!”

The new Synutra facility secures a long-term, stable supply of raw material for the production of infant powder formula. And, with the advanced production equipment, including PLF’s vacuum powder filling machinery, Synutra now has an even greater capacity to provide safe and nutritious formula to the burgeoning Chinese market.

PLF International was founded in 1994 and is based in Harwich, Essex. The company is a worldwide market leader in vacuum powder filling technology, with a customer base that includes global brands in the food, pharmaceutical and beverage sectors.
