dairy

Dairy ingredients and recipes are Alinda’s flagship. A major part of our aspirations is to share the nutritional importance and the beneficiary aspects of milk with different cultures from all around the globe, focusing especially on parts of the world that are missing out. We stand by cultures that consider milk variations as exotic or even luxury products, due to economic or climatic conditions, contributing to their dairy production and distribution.

This endeavor pertains the supply of functional ingredients and solutions for industrial users, in order to optimize the production process and the organoleptic properties of the final Dairy product. We are following the always growing market as well as the rapidly changing trends in nutrition consumer goods. A dietary field where milk product variations and derivatives play a vital part in.
