Lancaster Local, Noluma Team Up To Offer Light-Protected Milk

Lancaster Local + Noluma

Noluma International has partnered with Lancaster Local to roll out light-protected packaging that preserves the nutrients, flavor and quality of Lancaster Local’s new organic milk with A2A2 protein.

Lancaster Local is a Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based community of farmers that produce Grade A milk. Research shows that in as little as an hour, retail and other indoor lights such as fluorescents and LEDs, can degrade vitamins and nutrients in milk, as well as its freshness, overall quality and taste. Noluma-certified light-protected packaging enables Lancaster Local to maximize its milk’s quality throughout the product’s full shelf life while setting a new benchmark for Pennsylvania dairies and retailers alike, the companies say.

“Our dairy comes from grass-fed cows raised on small, family-owned farms and our farmers work hard to provide the best farm-fresh milk available in the Lancaster area,” said Philip Lehman, managing director of Swiss Villa LLC, Lancaster Local’s packaging provider and distribution partner. “With Noluma’s technology, we were able to design a light-protected bottle that preserves the product’s quality, nutritional contents and fresh flavor throughout its full shelf life. Now, when Lancaster Local milk drinkers see the Noluma logo, they can trust it’s providing all the benefits listed on the label, and more.”

The light-protected milk is now available for purchase in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The Noluma logo appears on Lancaster Local milk in these areas:

Lititz, Pennsylvania: Oregon Dairy (2900 Oregon Pike), Harvest Lane Farm Market (851 E. Oregon Road), and other local-owned grocery and health food stores;

York, Pennsylvania: Leg UP Farmer’s Market (3100 N George Street);

Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania: ShopRite (107 Kinsley Drive);

Bristol, Pennsylvania: Stoltzfus Country Deli in the Bristol Amish Market (498 Green Lane);

Wilmington, Delaware: Janssen’s (3801 Kennett Pike);

Washington, D.C.: Yes! Organic Markets (various locations);

Laurel, Maryland: Beiler’s Cheese Barn at the Dutch Country Farmers Market (9701 Fort Meade Road);

New York, New York: A Matter of Health (1347 First Avenue); and

Nanuet, New York: A Matter of Health (138 Rockland Plaza).

“More milk-drinkers are looking for local, organic and farm-fresh dairy products, but preserving these benefits can be difficult, especially in natural products,” said Chris O’Grady, business director-North America for Noluma International. “Noluma’s technology means brands can promise consumers that the products they love will maintain their quality, freshness, flavor and nutrients throughout the product’s shelf life. We are proud to partner with Swiss Villa and Lancaster Local to help set a new standard for packaging and light protection.”

Noluma debuted patented technology in 2018 that measures and assesses packaging’s ability to protect contents within from light degradation with more accuracy and efficiency than existing methods. This testing allows manufacturers to better understand the vulnerabilities of their packaging and work with Noluma to design, and ultimately certify, packaging that offers total light block, protecting the content’s nutrients, taste and efficacy, often while extending shelf life.
