  • [01] No change in five-day shelf life for milk, ministry decides

    ANA-MPA -- A meeting held at the rural development and foods ministry on Thursday to discuss proposed reforms for milk has ruled out an extension of shelf life beyond the current five days, at least for now. The meeting was held between Rural Development and Foods Minister Athanassios Tsaftaris, Alternate Minister Maximos Charakopoulos and scientists at the Hellenic Milk and Meat Organisation (ELOGAK) and the Hellenic Agriculture Organisation (ELGO Dimitra) to discuss the shelf life for low-temperature pasteurised milk, previously labelled 'fresh'.

    Expert scientists at the meeting said that production and distribution conditions in Greece did not permit the shelf life for milk to be extended beyond the current five-day limit for the present. They said an increase by one day might be marginally possible but only after the necessary scientific data was first collected.

    In statements earlier, Tsaftaris announced that the troika had accepted the changes proposed by the government concerning milk, which included removing the description 'fresh' from low-temperature pasteurised milk packaging. Low-temperature pasteurised milk will be split into two categories, one of which will be 'milk of the day' with a shorter expiration date, in addition to the low-pasteurisation five-day milk. Other categories of milk will be high and ultra-high temperature (UHT) treated milk.
