Tenaya Launches Charley’s All Natural, Shelf Stable Milk

Aug. 1, 2013

Available now in the vending channel by Winnetka, Ill.-based Tenaya LLC, Charley’s Milk has been launched in both 8 and 14 ounce ready-to-drink (RTD) bottles. Charley’s Milk is an all-natural, shelf stable, fat free and affordable flavored milk option. It is made with hormone free milk with no artificial colors or sweeteners. Tenaya starts with

Grade A Nonfat Milk and adds sugar and natural flavors to make the Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla products. Consumers won’t find red No.40 in the ingredient list, which is what typically gives other Strawberry Milks their pink hue, according to the release.

“I am proud to bring Charley’s Milk to market,” said Charley Snell, president of Tenaya, LLC, in a prepared statement. “It meets the needs of the market in a natural way and also tastes great.”

Charley’s Milk is shelf stable, requiring no refrigeration before opening, because it is manufactured aseptically. The shelf life is 6 to 9 months (chocolate). It also meets the American Beverage Association School Guidelines, meaning that products contain less than 150 calories per 8-ounce serving and contains 25 grams (or less) of sugar per 8-ounce serving.

Charley’s Milk in a 14 ounce bottle is available in two flavors, Chocolate and Strawberry.

Charley’s Milk in an 8 ounce bottle is available in three flavors, Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla. Both come in 12 count cases.
