UHT milk packaging: cartons the preferred choice

UHT milk (Ultra-High Temperature) is long-life milk resulting from a thermal process to kill bacteria and heat-resistant enzymes, while preserving nutrients and vitamins. This process helps to maintain the asepticity of the product for a long time, even when it is kept outside of the fridge, until the package is opened. The UHT process kills the bacteria in the milk which is then cooled and packaged aseptically. The most suitable and widespread type of packaging is the one offered by IPI, ie the multilayer carton bricks, which protect the milk for up to 12 months at room temperature.

Consumption of milk is really key. In fact, we all know how important milk is from a nutritional point of view as it is rich in many minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. This is also why we support numerous school milk programs around the word.

The UHT milk market is growing steadily, driven by rising consumption in China and other fast-growing Asian countries, which are more than offsetting slight declines in some developed markets.

Although cow's milk is certainly the most consumed, there is also a large worldwide consumption for buffaloes, goats, sheep and camel’s milk.

By virtue of our expertise, we have provided customers all over the world with aseptic filling lines, top-quality multilayer packaging material and closures for UHT milk cartons.

Feta cheese and other white cheeses in aseptic bricks

Feta cheese comes from the Hellenic tradition. It is a crumbly aged cheese and it is used as a table cheese as well as in salads and pastries.

It is commonly used with spinach or cheese pies or served with olives with aromatic herbs such as oregano.

When it comes to aseptic carton packaging, the product is packed as a liquid form and then solidifies along the process. Today feta cheese is appreciated all over the world and especially in Egypt, Greece, Turkey and in Arab Mediterranean countries.

Dairy cream is widely consumed in households. North America is the largest consumer of dairy cream and Europe is experiencing greater growth in demand.
