Attendees can visit the CMAB booth #10002 to learn more about products made with sustainability sourced milk from California dairy families.

“The National Restaurant Association show is a fantastic opportunity for California dairy to reach new audiences within the hospitality and foodservice industries. California is a reliable, consistent source of sustainable dairy products used by chefs and enjoyed by consumers throughout the world,” said John Talbot, CEO of the CMAB. “As the nation’s largest dairy state, California boasts an impressive lineup of award-winning cheesemakers and dairy processors, that are helping to drive dining innovation.”

California is the nation’s leading milk producer, and makes more butter, ice cream and nonfat dry milk than any other state. California is the second-largest producer of cheese and yogurt. California milk and dairy foods can be identified by the Real California Milk seal, which certifies they are made with milk from the state’s dairy farm families.
