Fresh for 60 days

Written by  Milking It

A Queensland-based company is set to release its own production of milk this year that stays fresh for at least 60 days.

 

Naturo, a food-technology company on the Sunshine Coast, is expected to unveil its unpasteurised milk at the end of next month.

The milk, created by Naturo chief executive Jeff Hastings, uses the haelen method which involves cooling the liquid down - rather than heating it up - which is normally the case during pasteurisation.

Naturo’s milk has even caught the eye of the Australian federal government which has given the company a A$1 million grant.

Milk trials were on track with the product expected to be ready for domestic sale at the end of February.It’s expected that once it’s up and running, up to ten million litres of the milk will be produced each year, and will be shipped around Asia.
