5.Mixing: This process is only completed for chocolate milk and eggnog. In this process, sugar and other ingredients are added and mixed into the milk to create the finished product. 6.Bottling:Bottling is a very costly process for Maple Hill. Maple Hill uses glass bottles to package its milk products, which requires more filling time than paper or plastic containers. Before the bottles can be filled, employees must sterilize and sanitize the glass bottles. The clean bottles are then placed on a conveyer belt to be filled. The filling of the bottles is completed by a machine that fills each bottle and also places plastic caps on the bottles. An employee removes the filled bottles from the conveyor belt and places them into crates. 7.Warehousing: When the crates are filled, an employee moves them to the refrigeration room in the warehouse. They are stored in the room until they are shipped. In addition to the refrigeration room, the warehouse also holds new and returned glass bottles as well as ingredients like sugar that are added to the milk in the mixing process.
