As the innovator, Europe has been the world’s main supplier of long-life milk for over half a century now. A type of milk that goes through a special process of heating at about 140 degrees Celsius for a very short period of time (about 3 seconds). The resulting liquid milk when packed inside an air-sealed container can last for many months without spoiling.
This is a fantastic way of delivering milk in liquid form to countries and regions of the world that do not produce their own fresh milk locally; places that traditionally milk powder has been the only means for the locals to enjoy milk’s nutritional benefits.
Known also by its production name UHT milk for ultra-high-temperature treated milk, the product has a storage life span of over 12 months. Moreover, this product while kept inside its sealed container, only needs to be kept in normal room temperature to last that long; no special refrigeration is required.
