Michigan Milk acquires Superior Dairy
Michigan Milk Producers Association is acquiring Ohio-based Superior Dairy.
President and CEO of MMPA Joe Diglio tells Brownfield the two companies have been working in partnership for the past six years and this announcement will expand innovation and value for dairy farmer members.
“Giving them the opportunity to see more on their monthly milk checks to offset the inflationary issues that they have, the labor challenges as well as the low milk price periods that we’ve experienced,” he says.
President and CEO of Superior Dairy Greg Soehnlen says the move will help their fourth-generation family-owned business maintain quality and consistency as it supplies 44 states from North Dakota south to Oklahoma eastward.
“We’re going to start to see some really neat changes in new products, new processing and or new packaging concepts that really move the dial,” he says.
Both say the partnership will allow the companies to reach new markets in a collaborative way and eliminate redundancies with plans to invest in innovation along with research and development.
The new organization plans to launch a multi-state dairy manufacturing and innovation campus with four facilities in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
