Jim Carper took his Dairy Case to Tillamook, Ore., this week.
July 13, 2012
Tillamook County, Ore., the so-called "land of cheese, trees and ocean breeze" is a magical place, a bit of Brigadoon in the Pacific Northwest, if you will (although you don't have to wait every 100 years to visit the place). I waited 56 years to make my first visit, and was instantly smitten by the region's beauty and the citizenry's friendliness.
Jim Carper's Dairy Case blog reviews this week's dairy news headlines, including: dairy processor Grassland plans to double the capacity of its milk plant; Hamdi Ulukaya, head of yogurt maker Chobani, receives an award; Coke is going to distribute dairy beverage Core Power, a popular recovery drink for athletes; the Dairy Council of California promotes the health and nutrition benefits of milk.
A recap of the people, products and processors making news in the dairy industry. This week : IDFA, DMI, Hood, DCI Cheese, Challenge, Hershey Creamery, Promised Land Dairy, Crave Brothers, Dallas Wuethrich and more.
I accompanied a delegation from the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy to the White House this week. POTUS was not in the house. Though we did not meet the President Of The United States, the trip was still memorable.
