These benefits and more were recently validated by a pilot program with Tetra Pak and the Dallas Independent School District (DISD), Texas’ largest school district, where the use of shelf-stable milk was implemented in nine schools. And the results are inspiring:
- Net milk consumption increased 12%
- Reduced delivery frequency, coupled with shared deliveries, can provide a significant cost reduction. From the results of the DISD pilot study, the district could save $1.5 million per year by switching the entire district to shelf-stable milk.
Overall, shelf-stable milk presents an opportunity for schools to reduce their costs and achieve operational efficiencies, while increasing their sustainability and improving access to safe milk. Would you be interested in learning more about the benefits of shelf stable milk for schools and the success the Dallas Independent School District has already seen in just 4 months? Tetra Pak and Dairy MAX can also speak to what the adoption of shelf-stable can mean for milk processors.
