Murray Goulburn relies on Tetra Pak for new line of milk

Murray Goulburn Co-operative has used Tetra Pak’s aseptic technology to create a new long-life milk line for Australia’s café industry.

Using Tetra Pak’s ultra high-temperature treatment (UHT) technology means the milk delivered will maintain its quality for up to nine months in storage and without refrigeration.

Devondale Barista’s Own brand, in 2 litre Tetra Brik aseptic cartons, offers cafés a shelf stable-alternative, for about the same cost as pasteurised milk.

According to Murray Goulburn Co-operative, Barista’s Own requires no refrigeration until a carton is open, reducing product wastage by up to 32 per cent.

“Devondale Barista’s Own has just 2 per cent fat, compared to 3.4 per cent fat in standard pasteurised milk,” Robert Ortolan, Murray Goulburn Co-op national foodservice manager, said.
