All commercially distributed milk in Finland is Pasteurized. Valio sells also a product called maitojuoma, which is specially-produced lactose-free milk-like product that, unlike regular lactose-free milk, tastes like regular milk with no extra sweetness.

In Finland, there are two main distributors of milk, Valio and Ingman. Valio packages feature drawings of cows, while Ingman's don't. Both have all kinds of products, so you cannot tell if a milk is what you want by looking for the cowless product :)
