Lulu Hypermarkets in Qatar now importing fresh milk from UK


Qatar’s Lulu Hypermarket Group has started import of all categories of fresh milk from world-renowned suppliers of United Kingdom twice in a week on a regular basis to ensure uninterrupted supply in all their outlets across the region.

The major categories of fresh milk that made available on shelves from prestigious dairy brands such as Graham’s, a2 and Countrylife etc. are: sterilised whole cow’s milk, skimmed cow’s milk, semi-skimmed cow’s milk, organic whole cow milk, skimmed organic milk and semi-skimmed organic milk etc. in 1L and 2L containers.

All these categories of fresh milk have an average shelf life of 7 days.

Rich in taste, nutritional contents

The Management of Lulu Group indicated that the fresh milk which is being imported from UK is rich with good taste and great nutritional contents such as Calcium, Carbohydrates, Fat, Phosphorous, Potassium, Iodine, Vitamin B, Zinc and Protein etc.

It is much better in quality and health-oriented than any milk that were available earlier from other GCC countries. a2 milk is cow’s milk that contains predominantly the A2 type of beta-casein protein rather than the more common A1 protein found in regular milk.

Besides, Lulu Group has also organized the import of whole cow’s milk, semi-skimmed cow’s milk, skimmed cow’s milk, whole goat’s milk and semi-skimmed goat’s milk etc. pasteurized in ultra-high temperature (UHT long life milk) from reputed companies of UK like Arla, Daioni and Delamere etc.

It is quite a healthy drink and all of the nutritional benefits of drinking milk are available from pasteurized milk without the risk of disease that comes with drinking raw milk. Normal pasteurization heats milk to around 70 – 75°C. for 15 seconds, — but the newer technique heats at up to 150°C. for 5 seconds.

At such a temperature, all harmful pathogens, including spores, are killed, as well as the enzymes which could spoil the milk, which is why you can keep at room temperature for months.

The milk also goes directly into the container after heating, which eliminates possible contamination. Also Almond milk, Cashew milk and Rice milk are also available on the shelves.

Soya Milk is also made available from major suppliers of UK namely Alpro, Provamel and Soysolei etc. in flavors like E/Calci Soya Milk, Soya with Coconut Milk, Unsweetened Soya Milk, Milk Light, Milk Vanilla, Chocolate Milk, Strawberry Milk, Rice Plus Calcium+Vit and Sweetened CI&Vitamin etc.
