Extending the shelf life of chilled milk

Extended shelf life (ESL) for dairy products offers advantages for product safety and quality. These include improved hygiene and reduced risk of recontamination with microorganisms during production, packaging and distribution.

ESL dairy products are also meant to meet challenges arising from:

  • Consumers’ increasing quality awareness and quality demands 
  • Expanding distribution areas. Consolidation of the dairy industry and the exploitation of economies of scale have become key to growth and even survival for many dairies. ESL technology is the most important tool for ensuring that milk and other liquid foods can travel greater distances while remaining fresh and having the required shelf life after arrival at their destinations. 
  • Marketing of branded and value added products: Higher margin and lower volume products need ESL technology for shelf life and for high and consistent product quality.

This white paper focuses on low-acid liquid dairy products, ranging from white consumption milk to flavoured milkshakes.
