Summary
Institute for Meat and Dairy Industry offers manufacturers of fermented dairy products bacterial starters for industrial use under a manufacturing or licensing agreement and is looking for partners to conclude a distribution services agreement.
Description
RUE "Institute for Meat and Dairy Industry" is the only manufacturer of bacterial starter cultures for the dairy industry in the Republic of Belarus. We produce 27 types of frozen and 24 types of dry starter cultures for the production of various types of fermented dairy products:
- for the production of cheeses, including additional cultures for cheeses;
- for cottage cheese and soft cheeses;
- for fermented milk products;
- for sour cream;
- for functional products.
Starters are used primarily for direct addition to prepared milk raw materials; certain types can be used to prepare industrial starters in a dairy processing plant.

The culrures are produced on the basis of only domestic strains of microorganisms using high-tech technologies developed in the Republic of Belarus.

To ensure the production of bacterial starter cultures, a Republican collection of industrial strains of starter cultures and their bacteriophages of the Republican Unitary Enterprise “Institute for Meat and Dairy Industry”, declared a National Treasure (Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus dated December 19, 2016 No. 1043), was created on the basis of the Institute. As part of the functioning of the Collection, the isolation, identification and maintenance of domestic industrial strains of lactic acid, propionic acid and bifidobacteria, including probiotic ones, is carried out. The unique properties of collection cultures form the basis for the industrial production of domestic dry and frozen bacterial starter cultures, and also form the basis for the development and production of new types of starter cultures.
Advantages and Innovations
Systematic and constant work is being carried out, taking into account global trends in the development of industrial microbiology and biotechnology, to improve the characteristics of combinations of microorganisms used as the basis for starter technologies, to study their resistance to bacteriophages and the stability of technologically significant characteristics.
The use of starter cultures produced by the Republican Unitary Enterprise "Institute for Meat and Dairy Industry" at milk processing plants allows for efficient fermentation processes, production of dairy products that meet quality and safety requirements, formation of a harmonious taste in products with a pronounced aroma, and preservation of quality characteristics during long-term storage.
