UHT Milk Portions - where to buy

Post by mortlock2005 » Thu, 04 Aug 2016 11:14 am

Has anyone seen those UHT milk portions on sale anywhere in Singapore? I mean those little cups full of liquid UHT milk, with the peel off lid. I have been asked to source them for my office. I probably need a retail seller, as I'm not buying a massive quantity.

I've been searching online, but have had no luck. Any leads would be appreciated.

Why not just buy the packet milk single serving sized containers.

That's what I have been buying, but I've been asked to get the mini pots. The small cartons are messy - people keep spilling them when opening and using.

Okay, I though you were looking for 200ml (cup/glass of milk) not for coffee/tea service. Can't find any here but you can get 'em from eBay Sg

Thanks for the tip. These are UK sellers, but maybe shipping isn't too bad. Still hopeful I might find a Singapore supplier. All those hotels must get them from somewhere local!!

I tried that as well as soon as I figured out what you were really looking for. So far after around 35 minutes of various search parameters I still couldn't find one. I'm sure there are as well, but just not clicking at the moment.

Why not check with coffee houses that may be using them to see where they are being sourced?

Check with SATS at the airport. They use them on the airlines. But I'd imagine that they order direct from the factories in huge bulk orders. About the only time I've seen them in recent years are in the US and on airlines. I cannot remember seeing them used here, to be honest.

Just Red Mart. They are a sort of Amazon for Grocery stuff!

SMS mentioned them but it won't hurt to ask them to source and deliver!

You mean this type, for coffee?

I have never seen it in Singapore but I would start from checking the German Market Place.

Amazon UK sells them (not sure if ships).

Other sources, I would check AU and NZ before the UK. Some places should be able to ship internationally.

I have bought the little jam/jelly/butter containers from angliss. I think they stock the uht milk containers too but you might have to email/call them, as there is not much info on the website.

Also try
http://www.benfoods.com

Yes X9200, those are exactly what I'm looking for. I found them from UK suppliers, and if I can find one with reasonable shipping, it might be the way to go. I'll look into German Market Place.

Judyp, thanks for the tip. I've sent enquiries to Angliss and Ben Foods.
