California Dairies, Inc. Expands Product Portfolio

August 21, 2015

VISALIA, Calif. — Building upon its successful dairy ingredients business, California Dairies, Inc. (CDI) has diversified its powdered milk offerings to include high protein powders – milk protein concentrates (MPC) and milk protein isolates (MPI). The addition of these new products demonstrates CDI’s vision to become the leading source of dairy nutrition for a healthy world.

MPC and MPI are high-value milk powders used in high protein drinks and bars as well as infant products, yogurts and cheeses. The production of MPC and MPI is a natural extension of CDI’s powdered milk portfolio and meets the needs of its customers for highly functional milk powders.

“The driving force of CDI’s strategic plan is to profitably market member-owners’ milk through product innovation and an expanding product portfolio. The inclusion of high protein milk powders to our portfolio is yet another example of how CDI executes its strategy and creates value for its memberowners,” said Andrei Mikhalevsky, CDI CEO.
