“We are delighted to win not only first, but also second for our Luscious Layered Yogurts which are made from locally sourced Welsh milk and Welsh cream and are produced and packed in Wales too. We have focussed on producing an indulgent yogurt, which looks and tastes like a dessert, but offers a healthier alternative compared to most puddings. It is fantastic for us to gain recognition for their flavour and quality by winning both of these awards.” Said Lynne King, Director of Daffodil Foods.

Daffodil Foods range of six layered yogurts is sold in Tesco and Asda throughout Wales and in many independent shops and delis too.

Gemak design and manufacture world class equipment and engineered solutions for dairy, processed food, beverage and chemical sectors.

The new yogurt plant was commissioned at the end of October and is capable of a fully automated continuous blending and processing of 3000 l/h yogurt. The plans for the new plant came on the back of a successful growth in Daffodil branded yogurts.

“We were very impressed with the continuous yogurt production line Gemak developed and are delighted to be the first fruit yogurt brand in the UK to go ahead with the investment. The new plant allowed us to remove a timely process of pre-mixing and preparing of the bases prior to pasteurisation, significantly reduced our energy cost and increased our processing/change over speed with better process controls. The proof is in the yogurt” Said Lynne King, Director of Daffodil Foods.
