When milk gets to the dairy

Last Updated: August 1, 2012

At the plant, milk is graded by a licensed raw milk and cream grader and pumped from the milk truck through a meter that measures the volume. At all stages in the processing plant, the quality and temperature of the milk are rigidly controlled. All dairy plants are licensed and must conform to strict standards of sanitation.

The milk is received at less than 4°C and goes into insulated holding tanks, where it stays for a few hours until the tank is filled up by all the trucks emptying their tanks at the plant.
