Dairy processing news: Fal Foods opens a plant in New York; Mayfield Dairy wins top honors

Unilever’s Breyers started offering 36 gluten-free ice cream varieties this month.

Fal Foods USA opened a manufacturing plant in Queens, New York to produce DF Mavens nondairy desserts. The $3 million, 8,800-square-foot, building includes office space and storage. Fal Foods USA consists of DF Mavens (dairy-free ice cream), Desserts that Matter (a wholesale ice cream manufacturer) and Brazilia Café (a global café chain serving select coffee from its own farm in Brazil).

Unilever’s Breyers, Englewood Cliffs, N.J., started offering 36 gluten-free ice cream varieties in May. The products will feature a "gluten-free" claim consistent with the FDA's rule on gluten-free labeling and an on-pack gluten-free logo.

Mayfield Dairy, Birmingham, Ala., received the Dean Foods CEO Quality Award for ice cream. This award is the company's top honor and Mayfield Dairy was selected over Dean Foods' eight other ice cream plants after a rigorous, year-long judging process. The award was presented to a group of tenured employees representing nearly 180 years of service.

Twenty-nine students demonstrating community involvement, academic performance and financial need will each receive a scholarship toward their higher education through Hilmar Cheese Co.’s 11th annual scholarship program. Thirteen children of Hilmar Cheese employees received scholarships. Others are children of the dairy farmers who ship milk to the cheesemaker and students with an agricultural major living in the counties where the company is located.
