DFA Ingredient Solutions, a division of Kansas City, Kan.-based Dairy Farmers of America, announced the launch of an e-commerce store that will enable food manufacturers to order smaller quantities of its award-winning high-quality dairy ingredients.

The new platform will initially feature dairy-based ingredients, including DairiConcepts seasoning blends, specialty powders and concentrated pastes, that were previously available in only larger quantities. Food manufacturers may now purchase bags of specialty powders and seasoning blends in sizes as small as 50 pounds, as well as a 45-lb. box of the concentrated pastes.

“We receive many requests from small food manufacturers for specialty ingredients that deliver flavor and texture benefits associated with dairy into their products,” said Carol Willenbring, vice president, marketing and R&D for DFA Ingredient Solutions. “Our response to these inquiries was to develop an online experience to give these companies access to the same highly-rated dairy ingredients that leading brands and larger food manufacturers have come to expect from us.”

Setting up an account with DFA Ingredient Solutions is easy. Simply visit dairiconcepts.com/shop, where users will verify their business and create an account. Once verified, products are available for purchase with a credit card, DFA Ingredients said. Preferred shipping methods are available, including overnight, two-day and standard ground.
