Kazakhstan is the heart of Eurasia. Karaganda Oblast is located at the heart of the continent. The largest region of the country is famous not only for its rich minerals and primary commodities but also world-class innovative projects. One of the largest plant producing dried mare’s milk was built in the region for the first time. Kazakh-German project was implemented in 2015 and operates at full capacity.
Construction of the complex was carried out in strict compliance with the European standards. Building materials used, equipment and technology were imported from Germany and they fully comply with environmental and health standards. The plant was built under direct supervision of Hans Zollmann, a European expert.
Breeding stock of the plant is represented by horses of Jabe Kazakh breed. This breed is adapted to the climatic conditions of Kazakhstan and has a high milk producing ability. It had been historically used for working and producing meat and dairy products.
The high-tech milking equipment we use ensures high quality (including safety) of our product and guarantees eco-friendly treatment of mares. Milking does not take much time, avoids loss of milk and intrusion of dust, and mares feel comfortable during milking, which certainly affects the quality of the final product - saumal.
Laboratory inspection is carried out at each stage of production, five times a day in total. After primary purification of milk from any impurities, the liquid gets into large vats, where it cools and starts to be pasteurized.
Then a sublimation process takes place, it lasts 24 hours. The technology implies drying of milk for the purposes of long-term storage. Milk is poured into shallow trays and loaded into the unit, where it undergoes freezing and sublimation. In the end we obtain 19 kilograms of dry product out of 200 litres of milk.
Then the product undergoes vacuum packaging; sterility of such packaging allows to retain the magical properties of saumal until its sale and consumption.
