key issues
Key Issues
  • Mature and competitive market place
  • Low consumption of Freshly Produced Cow’s Milk
  • Although UHT white milk is accepted, chilled products are the preferred choice
  • Pine Hill recognises the need for change
  • Our Objective is to revitalise the category by differentiating whilst maintaining affordability for the consumer
  • Requires an Innovative Processing, Packaging and Distribution solution while maintaining our strong brand image
  • Ultra-Pasteurised Process + Tetra Gemina Aseptic (TGA )Packaging is our solution to the challenges that we currently face
  • Extensive taste testing carried out using independent consumer research
  • Positive Results:
    • Taste Compared favourably with existing chilled products
    • Easy to open and close
    • Other significant positives: Superiority in pouring, handling, storage and general perception (shape etc.)
  • “We did not commit to this project without first checking with the consumer. The consumer has endorsed this process and package and has determined that Ultra-Pasteurised processing associated with the Tetra Gemina Aseptic packaging was the right decision for the Pine Hill Brand
  • It is the evolution that we need!


sequence of operations
Sequence of Operations
  • Aseptic Processing/Storage/Filling
  • Packaging
thermal process
Thermal Process
  • Aseptic processing occurs at very high temperature for a very short time
  • In the VTIS this operation involves injecting steam directly into the milk
  • This phase is followed immediately by flash cooling to restore the product to its original composition
aseptic storage
Aseptic Storage
  • After the heat treatment, the product is cooled to ambient and stored in the aseptic storage tank prior to filling
aseptic filling
Aseptic Filling
  • Filler is maintained under sterile conditions
  • Packaging material tube is filled with product in the aseptic chamber of the filler
  • The filled tube is continuously converted to 1 litre packages at 7,000 units per hour
  • The gable top and flat bottom are completed in the final folder section
case packer
Case Packer
  • The individual packages are fed from the Cap Applicator to the cardboard packer. There are 12 packages per case, in 6X2 arrays
  • The case is a full wrap around box/carton
production efficiency
Production Efficiency
  • The TGA line offers us the opportunity to produce larger volumes of our SKUs
  • This will result in improved yields
  • This will also allow us to improve on the availability of product in the market
ultra pasteurization27
  • Pasteurization and Ultra-Pasteurization are heat processes that are designed to kill bacteria (germs) in milk that may be harmful and/or may cause spoilage of milk products
  • Milk from farms is transported to dairy processing plants and is generally heat processed within a few days after milking to prevent spoilage and to prolong its shelf-life
ultra pasteurization28
  • “Shelf-life” can be defined as the length of time that a food can be held under recommended or practical storage conditions and still maintain its “freshness” or acceptable quality
  • The major differences between Pasteurized and Ultra-Pasteurized milks are the heat treatment and the method of packaging, both of which influence the anticipated shelf-life and sell-by dates
ultra pasteurized milk
Ultra-Pasteurized Milk
  • “Ultra-Pasteurized” means that the milk is heated to a minimum of 137.7°C for a minimum of 2 seconds
  • This temperature and time destroys virtually all of the bacteria in milk without significant impact on its nutritional value
  • Typically, ultra-pasteurized milk is packaged under near sterile conditions, which makes recontamination with spoilage bacteria unlikely and rare
ultra pasteurized milk30
Ultra-Pasteurized Milk
  • Though Ultra-Pasteurized milk is processed to be free of spoilage and harmful bacteria, it is not usually considered sterile if it is not hermetically sealed. That is, packaged in an airtight container and protected from outside influence
  • Pine Hill milk will be packaged under sterile conditions and to maintain, freshness (colour, mouth feel, taste) we recommend the product be refrigerated
  • The average shelf-life of Ultra-Pasteurized milk products can be as much as 90 days, however, in our market we anticipate turnover to be 30 days

Ultra-Pasteurized Milk
  • Once an Ultra-Pasteurized product is opened it may become contaminated with spoilage bacteria
  • Thus, after opening Ultra-Pasteurized milk should be kept well refrigerated and consumed within 4 days for best quality and taste
instant heating and cooling








Instant Heating and Cooling









  • Ultra Pasteurization
    • Direct steam injection from 80°C to 140oC for 1-4 seconds
    • Flash cooling from 140oC to 80oC
  • Pasteurization
    • Indirect heat treatment from chilled temperature to 80oC back to chilled temperature
  • UHT
    • Indirect heat treatment from chilled temperature to 137.7oC and cooled to room temperature
