Amul launched UHT treated homogenised milk in aseptic poly-packs under the Moti brand on Wednesday. The milk remains fresh for three months even if stored at room temperature, said R.S. Sodhi, Managing Director, GCMMF.
Amul dedicated the launch of Moti to Verghese Kurien, the Father of India’s White Revolution, who passed away recently. Moti will be available in 500-ml pack priced at Rs 20 and in a 200-ml pouch at Rs 9 a pack. Amul Moti will be initially available in Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and Chhattisgarh, Sodhi said.
The UHT milk is first heated at 138 degrees and then cooled so that all pathogens are killed. The milk is then packaged in a five-layered special pouch to increase its shelf life to 90 days, Sodhi said.
