In both the UK, Australia and New Zealand the overwhelming majority of consumers as part of their weekly shop buy milk from major retailers, corner stores and discounters, with a staggering 93% of the country’s population in the UK, Australia and New Zealand regularly consuming milk on a daily basis.
Retailers have managed to keep the price of milk at an affordable level, this has been good for consumers, and it has led to some amazing innovation within the packaging industry to drive out costs. With light weight bottles at 6.2g (23.4%) lighter than they were only a few years ago. Reducing the profile of the closure has again provided a further reduction of (6.7%) to just 1.4g.
These weight reducing programs have been good for cost control and the environment, but the integrity of the overall package has suffered. Without the induction seal the product would leak, and who wants a car boot full of milk in the middle of the summer. Guaranteeing that the induction foil which prevents spoilage in transportation performs every time has become mission critical to all dairies.
It great to see that the PATROLMAN™ range of quality assurance equipment is now being used extensively in the vast majority of dairies in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, to ensure that the induction sealing process is perfect every time.
It no good crying over spilt milk so protect the ‘White Stuff’ with the ‘Right Stuff’. That’s the PATROLMAN™ way.
