Seclam’s first year of production was 1952. The factory began by producing the following products:
Pasteurized milk sold in 1 liter & 250 cc glass bottles with a shelf life of 48 hours.
* Pasteurized chocolate milk sold in 250 cc glass bottles with a shelf life of 48 hours.
* Pasteurized milk sold in 50 liter aluminum buckets for hospitals.
* Packaged butter sold in 10 kg, 5 kg & 125 gm blocks.
Emmental Swiss Cheese
* Limited quantities of yogurt produced in a simple manner.
Due to the success achieved by Seclam factory in exporting high quality natural processed cheese, Seclam recently invested in a technologically advanced production line for processed portion cheese, which will be sold locally and exported. Production began in October 2002. This investment is the first stage of development for processed cheese production. Another major investment was accomplished with the purchase of a state-of-the-art Form, Fill & Seal machine for yogurt.
