We are a startup making fresh dairy alternatives in Ireland about to relaunch after a long break due to covid. At the moment we must make 2000L at a time but I'm really wary of the demand when we start up as we have a short shelf life.
I was thinking if we could pasteurise, bottle and then flash freeze our product and then use a quick thaw unit to defrost batches on demand?
This would mean we can make a larger amount of product and bring the cost down but keep it fresh. Is this something thats done or am I completely mad here?
