School milk – 403 million gallons of opportunities

Making sure kids in US schools get their daily glass of milk has its challenges – distribution is complex and once the milk is delivered, it needs to be consumed within a couple of days. If it isn’t, it becomes food waste. In fact, as much as 30% of US school milk is never used. And as schools use 403,000,000 gallons of milk annually, it’s a lot of milk that goes to waste. But that’s chilled milk.
Check out this listicle to learn more about why Shelf stable milk is a great, cost-efficient and more environmentally friendly choice for schools.
