Messina Milk is now available in plastic and glass bottles at select stores
We've had our Messina milk in select stores for the past few months—in shiny glass 1L bottles, just like the ones the milkman used to leave on your doorstep.
It's been great to see customers discovering our unadulterated milk, taking it home on a regular basis to feed their families. It makes simple things like coffee, cereal, shakes or smoothies taste so rich and creamy. It tastes like milk is supposed to taste.
In our romanticised mindset, we started using glass because we wanted customers to re-use their bottles for regular milk refills. But that was quickly put to rest as a result of our food and safety regulations.
As a result, we've now also released a 100% recyclable PET plastic bottle. Not exactly what we had envisaged, but the up side is it’s available at a lower price point than the glass. This means you now have the choice to buy our milk in glass ($6) or plastic ($4.50) bottles.
The product is exactly the same, the only difference is the packaging.
And if you're wondering what on earth this is all about; we now have a Jersey cow farm in Numurkah, Country Victoria, where our herd of 400+ happy Jersey cows live. They produce all the milk we need, which is beautifully rich, creamy and full fat milk perfect for making our gelato.
The milk is pasteurised and unhomogenised which means if you leave it to sit in your fridge, the cream will rise to the top, just like in the good 'ol days. We've been drinking this milk at Messina HQ for over a year now and can honestly say it's some of the best milk we've tasted. It's slightly yellower in colour than you'd normally be used to due to our cows being jersey cows. Once you try it, compare it to the $1 milk in the supermarkets and you'll never go back.
If you don't want to commit to a full bottle, you can try it in any of our shakes or just in scoop!.
