Internship Dairy R&D (mozzarella)

Internship Mozzarella Research

Customers have different needs, Korean customers like a “tiger skin” type of mozzarella, while other customers demand a mozzarella which hardly browns during baking. Chinese customers demand a “soupy” stretch while other customers prefer a “gummy” stretch. Customers are looking for the best mozzarella for their pizza. How to produce a mozzarella which meets such needs?
