Welcome to the dairy case, a round-up of what's new in products, companies and marketing.
The leaders of the International Dairy Foods Association's three constituent organizations said this week they support IDFA's dairy policy reform recommendations and oppose the National Milk Producers Federation's dairy policy package. The directors of the Milk Industry Foundation, the National Cheese Institute and the International Ice Cream Association approved the association's policy recommendations that would reform the Federal Milk Marketing Orders and provide a better safety net for dairy farmers.
