Food Tech: Fonterra launches 100% light proof bottle

New Zealand milk brand Anchor have launched a new, 'light proof' bottle, after identifying light spoilage to be a key factor in milk deterioration by "breaking down its fresh taste and natural goodness". Parent company Fonterra have found that traditional opaque milk bottles allow between 7% to 25% of light through, kick starting shelf life degradation and producing noticeable flavour differences within 2 days. To combat this, they developed a triple barrier bottle that is 100% light proof.
