Calving:X
As all the mammals, cows need to have a calf to produce milk. Once the calf is born the cow will produce milk during the 10 following months.
Milking:X
Cows are usually milked twice a day, in the morning and in the evening with a very strict process in dedicated milking room. 20 to 40 cows are milked at one time, taking about 5 minutes per cow. Milking machines mimic the action of a young calf which causes the milk to be released from the udder.
Milk collection:X
Milk is stored on farm at 4°C and for no longer than 48 hours. Milk is collected from the farm every 24 or 48 hours. The tankers used have a special stainless steel body which keeps the milk cold during transportation to the processing factory.
Milk Processing:X
Raw milk is pumped into storage silos where it undergoes different heat treatments and further processing following the type of milk manufactured.
Shipping:X
Once produced and packed, the milk is transported from the factory to the nearest port, and shipped on boat to make the journey from France to Hong Kong.
Consuming:X
Once received in Hong Kong, packed milks are distributed to the different stores, ready to be enjoyed by all the family!
