DFA Adds New Division

Ingredients are becoming a much bigger part of dairy sales.

Dairy Farmers of America, Inc. announces the formation of a new Ingredients and Contract Manufacturing Division.

Ingredient sales have always been part of DFA’s value-added offerings, but the formation of a unified ingredients division will allow the cooperative to be more proactive in the rapidly growing field of dairy ingredients.

"Ingredients is a growth area with real potential, which is why DFA management and the Board are dedicating more resources to it," says Mark Korsmeyer, president of DFA’s Dairy Food Products. "This new division will better allow us to meet the growing demands of our customers both domestically and internationally."

According to Korsmeyer, dairy is no longer simply a domestic product. Ingredients like cheese powders, condensed whole and skim milk, dairy flavors and casein are used in a variety of products around the world, including baby formula, ice cream and flavored dairy beverages. Already a manufacturer of these ingredients, DFA is in a position to strengthen its role in the ingredients arena.

DFA’s management and Board of Directors constantly look for ways to carry out the cooperative’s mission to deliver value to members. The new division is one of many ways DFA is increasing returns to its members.
