With increasingly small family nuclei and hectic schedules, having to finish up a carton of milk in a short period of time can be challenging.  The best and possibly the most economical solution would be to get two 1-litre cartons of fresh milk as opposed to one 2-litre bottle.  This makes it more manageable to finish one carton of milk in three days and allows you to consume the second carton at its freshest.  If you are still unable to consume all the milk within three days, why not create some simple milk-inspired snacks while spending time with bubba with fun recipes for the family!

F&N Magnolia has been a trusted nurturer for generations and continues to advocate drinking milk fresh from smaller packs so that it can be consumed at its freshest and within three days, as recommended by Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

The cold chain of milk should be maintained; fresh milk should be picked up last when shopping and should be placed in the refrigerator immediately when reaching home.
