Quality assurance

Feel confident: we ensure that all our milks meet strict quality and safety standards

  • For all our milks we carry out a large number of chemical, physical and microbiological tests such as fat, protein and moisture analyses to ensure the formula meets our strict specifications
  • Powdered milks are passed through a fine 2mm mesh sieve to ensure that the powder is evenly sized and perfectly clear. The powder is then packed into our specially designed tubs
  • Nitrogen is used to flush out oxygen from powder tubs; this keeps the product fresh, so tubs are tested for oxygen content continuously, as well as being secured with a heat-sealed foil lid
  • A sophisticated detector is used to ensure all packs maintain a consistent weight. Scoops are automatically dispensed into our powder tubs, and then all products are scanned with an X-ray machine to ensure consistent quality
  • Samples are taken before and after packing and tested against our strict product standards. We also carry out a number of routine tests to ensure packaging integrity. All this before a single pack leaves our factory
  • All our milk products go through 31 quality checks before being released
