Laboratory testing

The milk is tested from the time it is delivered to the dairy, through all the processing stages, up to and including final packaging. Douglasdale Dairy has its own laboratory. A full-time microbiologist conducts a number of tests daily to ensure that every milk product produced at Douglasdale Dairy is of the highest quality.

Processing

Douglasdale Dairy is one of the few dairies in South Africa that utilises a bactofuge in the production process.

The milk is pasteurised, homogenised, clarified and undergoes a bacterial removal process in a bactofuge. A bactofuge is a specially designed centrifuge that separates heat-resistant bacteria and other micro-organisms from milk. This process enhances the extended shelf-life of Douglasdale Dairy milk.


Tours are tailored to the age of the visitors,
ranging from toddlers accompanied by their
mothers, to university students and adults.
