Alway launch new brand, hsp and innovative cheese piercing solution, the hsp9000, at the PPMA show

Alway Loughborough are proud to announce the launch of our new brand, HSP and its first product, the HSP9000.

HSP (High Speed Piercer) is a new brand in the Alway group of companies and is a designer, manufacturer, installer and service provider of cheese piercing solutions. HSP’s first product to market is the patent pending HSP9000.

The HSP9000 (High-Speed Piercer) is an innovative blue cheese piercer that offers blue cheese manufacturers industry-leading efficiency whilst maintaining product quality.

The HSP9000 utilises second-generation full servo drive systems. This technology is used to pierce the cheese, starting the oxygenation process and developing the mould required to give blue cheese its characteristic flavour and texture. For the cheese to turn blue, oxygen must reach the inside of the cheese. This is done by piercing the cheese with Stainless Steel Needles. The blue mould then matures inside the air tunnels and creates the veining that appears throughout the cheese, developing flavour as it agesPiercing cheese in this manner allows for better consistency and higher standards of flavour and texture as mould grows deeper in the cheese.

The HSP9000 offers efficiency whilst maintaining quality by processing over 8,000 full cheeses per day. This innovative piece of machinery is available internationally through our dedicated transport, installation and training solutions, meaning more blue cheese manufacturers can access the financial and operational improvements that the HSP9000 provides.

We are excited to launch the HSP9000 at the PPMA Show, held this week at the Birmingham NEC, from the 26th to the 28th of September.

You can see the HSP9000 in action and in person on stand C36.
