IDFA recently sent a letter to the governor of Puerto Rico asking him to oppose a proposed bill that would restrict sales of imported ultra-high temperature (UHT) milk in the Commonwealth. The bill, S. 1237, aims to ban the sale of UHT milk that does not arrive in Puerto Rico within 30 days of its manufacturing date. Several IDFA members currently ship UHT products to Puerto Rico and would be affected by the ban. UHT milk is fresh milk that has been specially processed so that it will not need refrigeration until the container has been opened.
