The need for fresh, clean, and nutritious milk is driving the demand for alternatives to fresh milk from dairy consumers across the globe.

Additionally, they are also available in a lactose-free variant, which is offered for the specialized need of those who are highly lactose intolerant.

The traditional milk offered to consumers is usually only pasteurized, resulting in the shelf life of only a few days. The treatment of fresh dairy milk under ultra-high temperature ensures that the milk can be packed and stored for a longer period. Increasing commercialization of the dairy industry across the globe is driving the demand for better milk products since it is one of the basic food items consumed by human beings.
