Global Block Former Market – Overview
As the name suggests, block former simultaneously compress and cuts the cheese into blocks by feeding curd from the top. In a block former, the curd is compacted in a series of vacuum and pressure cycles and by gradually removing air and whey. The fused curd is cut into blocks of uniform size and weight as per the requirement and gently ejected into plastic bags over a conveyer. Meanwhile to maintain the continuous production the new curd is also added from the top of the tower. The cheese block former allows to form cheese blocks of different shapes and sizes depending on the need. The U.S. cheese manufacturers produce cheese in a variety of shapes and packaging styles such as barrel, block, daisy, flat, loaf etc. depending on the requirement.
The growing food industry and rising cheese demand is one the prime reasons fueling the demand for block former. The global market for block former has a global reach with many regional and global players operating in the market. The availability of the technologically advanced block former with uniform moisture and weight consistency along with higher flow rate is increasing in the market. The market for block former is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period.
Block Former Market – Market Dynamics
Manufacturing and food production industry is changing. Production processes are getting faster due to rising demand, which, in turn, is creating the demand for block former with higher flow rate. Storing cheese in the form of blocks allows better refrigeration in the available space and it also reduces the moisture migration and in addition it helps to achieve the cheese standards, which is, in turn, anticipated to raise the demand for the block former over the forecast period. Recent developments in the technology associated with block former have presented new avenues for the growth of their market. Manufacturers, in a bid to grab larger market share in the food machine industry, are developing advanced models of block former by incorporating new technologies. Increasing demand for cheese have fuelled the demand for block former as packaging is one of the significant aspects of the food industry. As a consequence, this is anticipated to augur well for the growth of the global block former market.
