From robots that milk cows to sustainable packaging that uses less plastic, Kroger has revolutionized the dairy industry.
PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) May 08, 2019
When someone asks where milk comes from, the traditional answer is from cows. And while that’s correct, there are a lot of steps that happen between cow and consumption. This process has been revolutionized by one company in particular.
This season on Tomorrow’s World Today, Field Reporter Tamara Krinsky visits one of Kroger’s milk distribution centers in Metro Detroit and learns the science of getting milk from farm to table. Kroger, America’s largest supermarket retailer, has one of the most sophisticated milk collection, processing, and distribution centers in the United States. From robots that milk cows to sustainable packaging that uses less plastic, Kroger has revolutionized the dairy industry.
“Kroger is a leader in producing quality milk products for families across America. In 2018, we produced 440 million gallons of milk,” said Erin Sharp, group vice president of Kroger Manufacturing. “We are excited to share our process and show our talented Michigan Dairy associates in the upcoming episode of Tomorrow’s World Today.”
Tomorrow’s World Today, nominated for a 2019 Daytime Emmy, returns to Science Channel for season two beginning Saturday, May 4 at 8am. Viewers can tune in every Saturday and Sunday morning for five weeks to watch back-to-back new episodes.
