Fresh is best

Written by 

The shelf life of fresh milk can be extended up to two months by a technology developed by an Australian company.

Queensland firm Naturo says it has patented technology which more than doubles the shelf life of pasteurised milk, making it safe to drink for up to 60 days without “cooking it”.

Although exact details of how the milk was treated were being kept under wraps, the company confirmed that it didn’t involve heat. It kills bacteria without destroying vitamins and enzymes.

The extended shelf life could be a game-changer for Fonterra. The co-op could send milk by ship to Japan, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia more cheaply than moving it by plane.
