Specialists in cheese production technology for cooked and uncooked pressed cheeses, we provide process and mechanisation solutions for the cheese production industry: milk and whey processing, coagulation vats, moulding, pressing, brining and CIP cleaning systems. Joining the Steap Stailor group in 2018 means we are now equipped with the necessary expertise and resources to provide the design, construction, installation and maintenance of stand-alone machines or turnkey production lines.

Our multi-skilled teams, experts in cheese production technology, ensure that every stage of a project is well-managed and well-built, in line with the group’s principles of rigour, quality and service.

Historically located in the heart of Franche-Comté (France), a region renowned for its exceptional PDO cheeses, the company has developed its expertise around local heritage, cheesemaking traditions and state-of-the-art technology. With a strong presence in France, we have expanded our operations worldwide, contributing to the influence of France’s recognised excellence in the cheese production industry.

The cheese industry of the future

Innovation

Whilst honouring cheesemaking tradition but with a firm focus on innovation, with no less than 7 patents to date, we provide solutions for the cheese industry of the future.

We have focused on the development of patented innovative solutions for 2 machines :

  • A moulding unit in the GME series with a nominal capacity equivalent to the production of 12 Comté type cheeses in 10 minutes. The innovative features of this machine include the ability to adjust the size and type of mould using 12 invertible mould extensions, as well as the ability to obtain precision moulding to form consistently shaped curd loaves. The design of the GME machine can be adapted to production capacity or mould format.
  • A fixed carousel press with enclosed sides and equipped with a central automated robotic arm for loading and unloading. This machine loads the demoulded cheeses onto the press columns and then unloads them for a fully automated system.

High-performance and innovative solutions, created by Evoli’s Research and Development department, are also available for each stage of the production line including pressing, conveyoring, weighing and cutting.
