In making its selection, the magazine considered dairy processors who are involved in the export market, who have built strong customer relationships, who are growing their international business, who are investing in their own processing facilities and other criteria. The magazine's staff solicited nominations through its LinkedIn professional network, its editorial advisory board of processors and from other knowledgeable players in the dairy industry.
 
The November issue of Dairy Foods will include a feature article about Leprino Foods' accomplishments in exporting.
