Unison Process Solutions become corporate member of the UFU

Friday, 23 April, 2021

The Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU) is pleased to reveal their new partnership with Unison Process Solutions, who has become a new corporate member. Unison specialise in pasteurisers, milk vending machines, homogenisers, heat exchangers, separators, pumps, and valves along with 24/7 on-call testing and servicing.

UFU membership director Derek Lough said, “We are delighted that Unison Process Solutions has become a corporate partner. This partnership will have great benefits for our members, particularly those who are interested in taking on a new business venture and diversifying by selling their milk on-farm through a vending machine.

“Unfortunately, as the years have progressed the strong link between farmers and consumers has lessened greatly. There are many who don’t fully understand where their food comes from or how it is produced. However, through the service that Unison offers, they have created another opportunity to bridge this gap and improve the public’s interaction with agriculture while also having great benefits for the farm business.”

Paul Sheehan, Managing Director of Unison said, “We are pleased to become corporate members of the UFU. Studies have shown that batch and continuous pasteurisation result in the exact same quality of milk, but Unison’s continuous pasteurisers can be three times faster, use 10 times less energy and can result in savings of over €3300 a year vs a batch pasteuriser. 

“Dairy Farmers selling their milk direct to customers is becoming increasingly popular in Ireland and the UK. Over the past number of years Unison has been working closely with farmers to help them perfect their process and get more value from their milk. At Unison we provide a one stop shop for everything you need to start selling direct. We have a range of innovative equipment including continuous flow (HTST) and batch pasteurisers, milk vending machines, glass bottles, bottle fillers, chillers and complete hygienic room solutions.

“A key strength of Unison’s products, particularly its pasteuriser offering, is they are designed to meet the needs of the small to medium-sized producers who traditionally had two choices: invest heavily in much larger equipment than they required or settle for batch pasteurisers which can be very laborious and time-consuming. Studies have shown that batch and continuous pasteurisation result in the exact same quality of milk but Unison’s continuous pasteurisers can be three times faster, use 14 times less energy and can result in savings of €3500 a year vs a batch pasteuriser. Unison's innovative range of plug-and-play pasteurisers are also 100 percent Automatic with one-touch operation. Our main focus is to ensure that your production process is as simple as possible, and we have developed affordable alternatives to make this a reality.”
