Milk breakthrough that can keep it fresh in the fridge for 60 days offers lifeline to dairy farmers

A Queensland food technology company has patented a process it claims can keep 100 per cent natural milk fresh in the fridge for at least 60 days without additives or preservatives.

Naturo CEO Jeff Hastings has already developed technology to stop processed avocado turning brown using air pressure treatment.

Now the company has made what Mr Hastings described as the biggest breakthrough in the $413 billion global dairy industry since pasteurisation in 1864.

Naturo is targeting export markets with a process that produces fresh milk which remains safe to drink for two months without ‘cooking it’.

  1. WOW! Now if it could just be scaled down to the farm level! Perhaps it can be! I could see this process being very helpful in cheese production as you could introduce unique bacteria without contamination and with longer make periods without having to worry about unwanted bacteria ruining the run and/or producing off flavors within the cheese.
