Packaging

Last Updated: August 1, 2012

Drinking milk is then packaged. As plastic coated paper cartons (one or two litres) move along a conveyer belt beneath the filling machine, milk is automatically released into them. Another section of the machine heat-seals the cartons. For pouch pack milk, one machine cuts a long tube of plastic, heat-seals it at one end, fills it with the measured amount of milk, then heat-seals it closed. Three bags are then sealed in a larger polyethylene bag. Milk and cream are also used to make ice cream, butter, cheese and other dairy products.

The cases of milk and dairy products are kept in a large refrigerated storeroom, ready to be put onto refrigerated trucks and taken to the stores. Milk processing usually takes less than a day from beginning to end.
