The article offers several views on the proposal of the British Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to introduce UHT longlife milk in the country. At the moment, only 5% of milk consumed in the country is UHT but DEFRA reckons that could be increased to 90% by 2020. A consumer believes that the supermarkets will decide what the British consumer wants.
