Cottage cheese is the most profitable end product of milk processing. This means that the production of cottage cheese is an almost perfect addition to the production range of many cheese factories.

“We have found MKT’s vats to be superior for the production of cottage cheese, and you get the best value for money.”

-Harri Mikkola, Process Expert, Valio Ltd


A new generation of Cottage Cheese Vat, in which the knowledge of the original designers is combined with the innovative product development of High Metal Oy.

  • The first vat on the market with knife cutters instead of wire cutters which means better yield and product safety.
  • Both long cut and cross cut knives are individually powered.
  • Single cut method enables optimal yield and curd identity.

With a high-quality cheese cutter, the end result of the cutting is precise; making the cheese granules as smooth as possible and the amount of poorly cut curd and cheese dust remains minimal. Evenly sized granules have a significant impact not only on the homogeneity of the cheese batch produced but also on the yield.

We have over 50 years of experience in designing, manufacturing, and delivering cheese making equipment. This competence ensures a reliable delivery and a very satisfied end customer.


1. Excellent profit. Cottage cheese is currently one of the most profitable products in the further processing of milk. Due to volume production, the profitability of semi and hard cheese production is currently low, but the profit for cottage cheese production is good. Factors that influence the better profitability of cottage cheese include the favorable competitive situation for special cheeses and better opportunities for the modification and branding of cheeses.

2. A fast and straightforward production process. Unlike the lengthy production and maturing processes of basic cheeses, the production process of cottage cheese is short and the cheese is packed straight into consumer packages without maturing. The production of cottage cheese is fast and the production process easier to manage.

3. The production line won’t take much space. A cottage cheese production line can often be placed within the existing premises of the cheese factory. This makes a cottage cheese production line a good expansion option for existing cheese factories.
