For the first time, Maple Hill Creamery will offer its organic, grass-fed milk in single serve SIG carton packs that have ‘minimal impact’ on the environment.

The new 8oz sizes of Maple Hill’s Whole Milk and Chocolate Whole Milk are packaged in combismile cartons, primarily made from raw, renewable wood. The company called it a needed innovation for the milk category that “has been quiet far too long.”

The cartons will have the label of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which confirms the wood materials came from responsibly managed, FSC-certified and other controlled sources.

Maple Hill’s milk - Whole, Reduced Fat and 2% Chocolate - was previously only available in half-gallon multi-serves. The single packs are 100% recyclable and have a re-closable cap with a leak-proof spout.

Carl Gerlach, president and CEO of Maple Hill, said, “There has not been an innovation in shelf-stable milk for years. For the first time ever, consumers will be able to get 100% grass-fed whole milk and chocolate milk on the shelf and in eco-friendly packaging. SIG has been an integral partner in bringing this product to the market in the right way.”

The single serve packs are now sold at Yankee Stadium in New York City, as well as on Amazon, and at nationwide retailers Publix, Amazon Fresh, Fairway Markets and Morton Williams.

All Maple Hill products are gluten-free, kosher, USDA Organic and non-GMO, made with no antibiotics, artificial flavors or additives. Maple Hill also sells 32oz bottles of kefir in five varieties and blended yogurt and Greek yogurt in several flavors.
