Stabilak, for the natural preservation of milk
Adopting STABILAK in other countries

[quote]Cuba’s National Centre for Agricultural Sanitation (CENSA) is willing to lend technical assistance for the installation of the STABILAK production plant, for correct use of the product, for implementing integrated programmes for improving milk production and quality, reorganising of milk collection systems, and so on. Support can be provided also for negotiation activities with the local interested parties, always in compliance with the local laws.[/quote]
STABILAK may be produced or marketed by, among others, a government or private organization, the dairy industry or producers’ organizations, as well as by international development programmes.

One of the basic elements of this innovation is its social impact, as it is directed at a group which requires a great deal of support for starting or maintaining a dairy at a competitive level, something that would benefit the family and the community immensely. At the cultural level, the product involves several training activities for producers that reinforce better milking practices and hygienic handling of the milk. Consumers get a product which is safer and of higher quality. At the financial level production is relatively simple and does not require a high investment to set up or run.

Use of the activating product of the LPS is very simple and designed for any person, even with a low level of scholarization; it can be used without major risks of committing errors. STABILAK’s design allows for the quick and safe identification of each formulation and volume. Nevertheless, each user always requires practical instruction. It is preferable to use it within a programme for improving the production and quality of the milk, one which reinforces good handling and hygienic practices while milking and afterward. It must be emphasised that the effects are better and longerlasting if the milk used is of better quality.


1. A sealing machine
2. A stove, to dry the raw material
3. A sieve
4. A rapid, digital and automatic scale
5. A digital weighing machine (up to 15 KG)
6. A dehumidifier
7. Air conditioning

In Cuba, the innovation is managed by the National Centre for Agricultural Sanitation, which is part of the Republic of Cuba’s Ministry of Higher Education. The Ministry produces and markets the product. National legislation regulates types of marketing with other countries and allows for the production and marketing of this product in other countries.

It is advisable to involve the following institutions for producing and using STABILAK in any country:

The Ministry of Agriculture
The Ministry of Food Industry
Cuba’s Ministry of Public Health
The Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment
The FAO, which has a project that includes several countries on every continent (the Global Lactoperoxidase Programme).

It may be useful to consult the following regulations:

Code of Principles Regarding Milk and Dairy Products (FAO-WHO Document CX-5-70, 1991)
Global Lactoperoxidase Programme (GLP) documents, from the FAO

To obtain the adequate authorizations from the health departments, within each country, is a necessary condition for utilization and commercialization purposes.

The necessary costs for production and use of STABILAK should be subject to careful analysis in each country and situation, depending on the means available to each country/situation (for example, product import, setting up a factory in the country in question, technical assistance, etc.).
