2018 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product contest results

Dairy Farmers of America products and brands recently earned 18 awards at the 2018 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product contest, including a sweep of the Mozzarella category.

“Our farmers work hard every day to responsibly produce milk and bring nutritious and delicious dairy products from their farms to family tables,” says Kristen Coady, vice president of corporate communications at DFA. “These awards are a reflection of the hard work and dedication of both our farmers and the numerous employees who help produce our dairy products, and we are thrilled to be recognized for delivering great-tasting, high-quality products in so many categories.”

The national contest, which is sponsored by Wisconsin Dairy Products Association, garners participation from across the United States and received more than 1,400 entries this year. Products are judged in 82 categories, including cheese, butter, fluid milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, sour cream, sherbet, cultured milk, sour cream dips, whipping cream, whey and creative/innovative products from dairy processors throughout North America.

First place winners will be auctioned off Oct. 2 at World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, and proceeds will be used to fund scholarships for students pursuing careers in the dairy industry.
