Organic Mandya supplies Desi Cow Milk of native/desi breeds. Unlike Regular Pasteurized milk that removes important micro-nutrients, a Whole Raw Milk (like Desi A2 Milk) needs a different kind of care to make sure it reaches to you in the freshest possible condition.
We wanted to talk about the process we follow and a few simple precautions that you can take to make sure the milk stays fresh.
Here's the process that we follow:
- We collect the milk from our farmers and analyze it through an Analyzer Test (do check the image of this test result at the end of the post!)
- There are total 4 parameters we measure using the test and we make sure the collected milk matches our set standards
- After collecting the milk, we store in multiple freezers
- The milk then gets transported using Chiller Van to our facility near Coorg
- We do one more Analyzer test at our facility and make sure it matches with the previous Analyzer test done at our collection center
- We pass the milk through a very fine filter to remove souring bacteria
- The filtered milk then gets immediately chilled using a milk cooling system (BMC) at our facility
- We start packing the milk
- We ask our delivery executive to start the engine of the Chiller Van to start the cooling process to make sure the temperature stays below 2° degrees
- Once the temperature is below 2° degrees, we start loading the milk crates in the Chiller Van
- Our delivery executive starts the journey to the city and makes several drops to various distribution points across the city
- All our distributors are strictly told to keep the milk in an Ice Box or a Freezer right after the delivery
We have made several changes to our process in the past weeks and we are confident there are 2-3% chances of something going wrong during this. As you'd have observed, we make sure to not expose milk to ambient/room temperature for more than 10 minutes.
We know how important this milk is for you and your family. It's a peak summer and the milk we supply needs extra care from both ends.
Now, as a conscious consumer, you need to continue the cold chain as well. Generally at home, we keep refrigerator temp b/w 7-9 degrees which isn't sufficient to keep milk fresh.
We suggest two alternatives:
1. Boil the milk at slow flame after it's being delivered to you
2. If you don't want to boil right away, store the milk in a Freezer where the temperature is below 2° Celsius, right after it's being delivered
The point is to not keep milk out in the open for more than 1 hour. You can either boil it, or keep it in a Freezer.
Please let us know if you have any questions on this, would love to answer!
