How to bring nutritious dairy to remote regions of Venezuela without reliable refrigeration.

Video Placeholder
Fresh, nutritious food is vital for survival, but in many parts of the world people have limited access to refrigeration.

“Dairy products are difficult to transport as they require complicated cold chain distribution that's not available across Venezuela. This means many families can't access dairy produce that is essential to a healthy diet, such as yogurt.”

PRESERVING WITHOUT PRESERVATIVES

 

 

One of Venezuela's leading food manufacturers, Empresas Solar, was trying to solve a problem. How could people in remote parts of the country benefit from its nutritious yogurt, MiGurt, without refrigerated transport and storage? They asked Amcor to find a solution.




 










This breakthrough technology enabled Empresas Polar to utilise its extensive, nationwide ambient distribution chain to reach families in Venezuala including those in low-income regions not served by refrigerated distribution channels.

“We are excited about the way the packaging has drastically reduced distribution costs, helping keep the price of MiGurt down, so people living in the less prosperous regions can afford to enjoy the healthy snack.”

- MANUEL CAPDEVIELLE Business Leader Empresas Polar

The new design not only keeps the yogurt fresh for up to six months without the use of refrigeration, it protects the nutritional value of the yogurt without the use of preservatives.

Amcor's commitment to innovation means we'll find ways to protect essential consumer goods so they safely reach people around the world, not matter what the challenges.
