The dairy product business is a highly competitive industry in Europe with players such as Danone Group, Unilever and Nestlé owning the biggest market shares. A United Arab Emirates based company is differentiating itself from the biggest players by shipping camel milk to Europe.
The Emirates Industry for Camel Milk and Products is now bringing its camel milk products to European consumers. It is the first company that the European Commission has granted the license to ship camel milk products to Europe. The first products under the ‘Camelicious‘ brand were shipped in 2013 and they consisted of camel milk powder, fresh camel milk and camel whey powder.
Camel milk is a really low fat type of milk and has more calcium than any other milk. Also its Vitamin C content is 3-5 times higher than cow’s milk. There are no known allergies for camel milk and also people suffering from lactose intolerance are able to digest it.
Shipping Camel Milk is also a new application for cold chain logistics. The cold chain involves the transportation of temperature sensitive products along a supply chain through thermal and refrigerated packaging methods and the logistical planning to protect the integrity of these shipments. There are several means in which cold chain products can be transported, including refrigerated trucks, refrigerated cargo ships as well as by air cargo.
Shanghai Metal Corporation sells refrigerated containers to help businesses to maintain their cold chain during the whole supply chain.
