Land O'Lakes named Dairy Foods Processor of the Year

We're capturing marketplace-back insights and leaning into our farm-to-fork business model

Land O'Lakes, Inc. Squeeze Butter On A Table

At Land O'Lakes, Inc., we’re never forgotten that our cooperative was founded on the idea that we can create a better tomorrow by working together today. Our Dairy Foods business is bringing this to life by capturing marketplace-back insights and leaning into our farm-to-fork business model.

This approach is clearly gaining recognition in the industry as Land O’Lakes Dairy Foods has been recognized by Dairy Foods Magazine as the 2018 Dairy Foods Processor of the Year and is featured in the December cover issue: “2018 Processor of the Year: Land O’Lakes is a cooperative powerhouse.”

The story recognizes our collaborative approach to procurement and processing, and spotlights new products -- (including Land O Lakes Soft Squeeze spread, Land O Lakes butter with canola oil plus calcium and vitamin D and Land O Lakes family-size light butter with canola oil) and new messaging (All Together Better) -- all of which are geared toward retaining existing customers and attracting the next generation.

Land O’Lakes leaders, including Land O’Lakes president and CEO Beth Ford and Chris Roberts, president, Dairy Foods and EVP, Land O’Lakes are quoted in the story highlighting our cutting-edge dairy-industry-mentorship, sustainability, employee and product-innovation initiatives.
