Dairy Foods seeks nominations for the “Tom Camerlo Exporter of the Year Award.” The honor, named to recognize the long-time leader of the United States Dairy Export Council (USDEC), is bestowed upon a U.S. company that exhibits exceptional leadership and commitment to the international market. Nominees should demonstrate an active role in driving the growth of global dairy demand; industry leadership in advancing U.S. dairy exports; company resources committed to export market development; and export sales success.
In 2010, United Dairymen of Arizona was the recipient. A long-time USDEC member, UDA had exported more in the first six months of 2010 than in the previous two years combined. The Tempe, Airz., based cooperative has about 70 producer members.
Previous recipeints of this award are Hilmar Ingredients (2009), Schreiber Foods (2008), Darigold (2007) and Davisco Foods (2006).
