100-percent grass-fed organic milk is now available in shelf stable, single serve cartons.
For the first time ever, 100-percent grass-fed organic milk is now available in shelf stable, single serve cartons.
Oranic dairy producer Maple Hill of Kinderhook, N.Y., recently hooked up with leading aseptic packaging producer SIG to create an exciting new innovation in for a growing product category that has been quiet far too long.
As a result of this joint endeavour, the Maple Hill brand 100-percent grass-fed organic whole milk and chocolate milk, made with certified Fair Trade Cocoa, are now available in eight-ounce combismile cartons from SIG. According to SIG, the cartons provide a convenient, on-the-go option in a shelf-stable package that does not need to be refrigerated until after it is opened. Instead of a straw, the fully-recyclable package features a reclosable cap with a leak-proof and tamper evident spout. The packages are fully recyclable.
“There has not been an innovation in shelf-stable milk for years, but for the first time ever, consumers will be able to get 100-percent grass-fed whole milk and chocolate milk on the shelf and in eco-friendly packaging,” says Maple Hill president Carl Gerlach.
Adds Gerlach: “SIG has been an integral partner in bringing this product to the market in the right way.”
