Now in modern trade
Malaysia’s Farm Fresh has recently made available its Kurma Milk in the modern grocery stores. Milk made with kurma or palm dates is known to be a “good source of iron for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, helping the development of red blood cells in infants.”
No sugar and preservatives are added.
Selling mainly through home dealers
Apparently, Kurma Milk has been in the market for sometime selling mainly through home dealers. According to one of the home dealers, they cannot order only Kurma Milk from the manufacturer as there is limited stock available. Each Kurma Milk ordered has to be matched by another milk from Farm Fresh. Therefore, when the home dealer sells Kurma Milk to their customers, the package will come with other non-Kurma milk as well.

Kurma Milk (700g) is available at Cold Storage for RM 7.99 and is priced at a premium compared with the chocolate milk.
