Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), a Kansas City, Kan.-based dairy cooperative, said it realigned its Ingredients division, including dairy powders, dairy food ingredients, DairiConcepts (https://dairiconcepts.com) and Berkshire Dairy, to form DFA Ingredient Solutions. This new group offers a vast portfolio of award-winning, dairy-based ingredients: cheese, sweetened condensed milk, butter solutions, milk and nutritional powders, seasoning blends, dairy concentrates and flavors, along with custom solutions, DFA said.

DFA Ingredient Solutions leverages its team of scientists, risk management, customer service and logistics professionals to provide the right solutions for its customers — from chefs to food manufacturers — that seamlessly integrate into their production processes and end products, DFA said.

"Through our division, we are connecting our family farm-owners to consumers around the world through our portfolio of diverse dairy-based ingredients," said Martin Bates, senior vice president and chief operating officer for DFA Ingredient Solutions. "Working as one team allows us to be customer-focused and provide them with a seamless, efficient experience."
