What makes Cravendale so pure?

We don’t just pasteurise our milk, we also finely filter it to make it purer for a fresher taste. And because we remove more of the unwelcome bacteria that turn milk sour, it lasts a lot longer too.

What is pasteurisation?

Pasteurisation is a heating process invented by one Mr. Louis Pasteur, a
19th Century French biologist. The milk is heated for a defined length of
time and then immediately cooled it after it is removed from the heat. We
first pasturise Cravendale, before finely filtering it to make sure it’s as
pure as can be.
