While Nestlé USA retained its No. 1 spot on the Dairy 100, Saputo jumped past Dean Foods to land in the No. 2 position.
The Dairy 100 identifies the largest dairy processors in North America that manufacture milk, cheese, ice cream, cultured dairy, dairy powders and other dairy-based foods and beverages. This year’s edition of the Dairy 100 sees new names and bids farewell to some long-standing members, due to acquisitions or lack of growth.
