Ingredient Cheese

Milcobel’s cheese history actually begins in 1964, with the production of cheddar. Twenty years later, mozzarella production kicks off, with ingredient cheese production being centralised in Langemark in 1995. Every year, over 60,000 tonnes of mozzarella roll off the production lines there. That makes Milcobel the European reference manufacturer for mozzarella par excellence.

Milk Powder

In addition to full and skimmed milk powders we also produce ‘fat filled’ powders. Tailor-made, customer-specific dry blending formulations for the baby food industry are also part of our product portfolio. We also offer a full range of tins and sachets in consumer packaging, in addition to bulk and bulk packaging.


Depending on the season, Milcobel can supply summer or winter butter. We also offer sour, sweet, unsalted or salted butter. Our butter can be used for baking (viennoiserie) or the making of chocolate, cookies and other applications.

Good to know: our butter is a North-European butter with a slightly harder structure.


Our cream has many versatile applications in the food industry: ice cream manufacture, butter, cheese, ready meals, etc.

40% cream available in 25-ton bulk shipments.


Whey or milk whey is the liquid by-product of cheesemaking. The liquid has a yellow-green colour and tastes slightly sour. Boasting a very high nutritional value, whey is used in many applications, such as baby and sports nutrition and feed for veal calves.

You can order these whey derivatives from us:

  • Whey concentrate (30% dry matter)
  • WPC25 or WPC35 concentrate (30% dry matter)
  • Whey permeate concentrate (30% dry matter)

These products are available in various qualities. We also offer kosher and halal-certified whey ingredients (no additives).
