Leave Single-Use Plastics Behind – with the help of Green Valley Dairies

Posted in: Green Valley | 21 Nov 2023

"The Udder Way" is the creation of Edward Crick (Ed) who grew frustrated at the hundreds of milk bottles he used every week in his coffee shops.  Watching these bottles get taken away and knowing that only half ever get recycled became an issue he wanted to fix.

To resolve this, it needed to fit in seamlessly with any current process.  Ed created The Udder Way Kegs which can be connected to existing milk dispensing units or a simple tap system can be provided, allowing baristas to easily pour milk without the waste and clutter of plastic milk bottles.

It’s great for business and even better for the planet!  Each Udder Way Keg holds 18 litres of milk, the same amount as NINE 2 litre milk bottles, and has a lifespan of at least 8 years, before being recycled and turned back into Kegs.  The Kegs not only increase efficiencies in milk dispensing, but it also reduces the amount of single use plastics and pollution in the environment.  Every time a Keg is used it saves nine 2 litre milk bottles from waste.  A big win for the dairy industry, hospitality sector and the environment!

This system is now available in New Zealand via Green Valley Dairies who share the same vision of maximining sustainability within the Milk market whilst also delivering the high quality organic and non-organic Milk Green Valley Dairies is known for.

The Kegs have been designed so that they can be easily:

  • Stacked and stored           • Loaded on milk trolleys        • Handled by an individual                    

  • Transported & tracked      • Stored in conventional & commercial fridges            

  • Easily cleaned                    • Re-used time & time again

A QR code unique to each Keg provides tracking via The Udder Way app enabling us to keep track of where your kegs are, what’s in your kegs, the use by dates and the amount of single use plastics that you’re saving from being produced.
