Pine Hill Dairy takes on horns of a dilemma directly – Bajan Reporter invited to Conference: Management seek to directly address Barbadians’ concerns with new Tetra Pak containers
Bajans compared with rest of world are not huge dairy consumers, 18 litres per year is the average maximum. Americans quaff 80 per year and even they are dwarfed by Europeans at 140 litres per year and Aussies only chug 120 litres per year.
Yet for the small amount of dairy that Bajans drop down their neck, they are mighty picky about what they ingest. As you recall a Facebook group started to protest the new Ultra Pasteurisation process, the item which was released on this site drew quite a few comments and still draws the attention of ultra-conservative Bajans who probably still wish we had horse and buggy yet want Tourists to believe we have the most advanced facilities around.
The original item composed here led to the Bajan Reporter receiving an invitation. Banks Holdings Ltd invited the Bajan Reporter to a Press Conference which looked at the Facebook response, the use of FRESH, why the size change and what budget was used to create the new method of storing the popular liquid. Here are some video highlights when the Bajan Reporter attended by invitation;-
The equipment bought is $14 million and no immediate plans to have a 2L package before 2012 or so… Will goat’s milk gain an edge? Will dairy farmers create their own brand? Knowing Bajans, there’ll be a hullabaloo up to the end of the month and then it’s business as usual – for PHD this is a good thing, for Richard Hoad’s goats may bleat a next tune.
