Isle of Man Creamery has commissioned its new milk carton production line, which will allow the company to update its packaging with a brand new format.

The new machine will package milk in latest quality, custom-designed, screw-top cartons.

By using the new production line, Isle of Man Creamery will introduce a resealable screw cap to its one pint cartons for increased convenience, isle of man.com reported.

"The investment in this new machinery is more than just an upgrade."

Isle of Man Creamery will also introduce two new pack sizes, including a 189ml carton for the snacking and sandwich market and a 950ml carton for families that will be sold across the island for £1. The new packs will be available in stores starting from 4 May.

These packs claim to reduce leakages and maintain the integrity and taste of fresh Isle of Man milk.

Isle of Man Creamery managing director Findlay Macleod said: "The investment in this new machinery is more than just an upgrade.

"This state-of-the-art machine is a clear sign of our commitment to our most important consumers: the people who buy fresh local milk and support our farmers. The new packaging brings two major advantages.

"First and most importantly, it brings an improvement in the quality of our packaging by drastically reducing, if not actually eradicating, the possibility of leaking cartons and maintaining the integrity and great taste of our fresh Isle of Man milk. Second, it also gives us the opportunity to create a medium-sized pack that gives consumers a convenient quantity for just £1, which is something we have wanted to do for some time."
