Fresh milk is a complete food for human healthy living. Cow milk is
greatest among the natural food. Milk has very close correlation with
our culture. Milk is the symbol of prosperity. The cow is fed with our
natural grass and natural water and she breathes our fresh air from the
environment. Therefore, milk is a wonderful food created by nature.
Hygienically processed and aseptically packed, this milk can be
preserved at ambient temperature for a long period without affecting its
quality and freshness.
Most Sri Lankans are used to consume milk powder. Sri Lanka spends Rs
20 billion per year in foreign exchange to import milk powder. Milk
powder, generally takes around six months to reach the consumer.
Therefore, its nutritional value is questionable. At present technology
has been developed to process milk by heating for a short period coupled
with aseptic packaging to preserve its quality and freshness.
