In the KQEN Business Spotlight:
Five products from Umpqua Dairy have been judged to be the best in the northwest.
That announcement was made at the recent 107th annual Oregon Dairy Industries Conference.
A release from Umpqua Dairy says they received the Sweepstakes Award in both Ice Cream and Cultured Products judging competition. The company’s cottage cheese, buttermilk, sour cream, vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream were judged the best in the northwest. Umpqua Dairy was also awarded second place for chocolate milk in the Fluid Milk Division.
The dairy products were judged by an independent judging team from Oregon State University and the dairy industry. The release says they were judged on flavor, appearance, body and texture. Sweepstakes awards were given to the single company that scored highest overall in judging in each of the various product categories.
Director of Plant Operations John Harvey says the company is “thrilled to once again bring home the sweepstakes trophy for our ice cream, as well as the sweepstakes award for our cultured products”. Harvey says to be honored with such awards by their peers is “the highest compliment one can receive”.
Umpqua Dairy remains the largest independent dairy in southern Oregon.
