When You Want Sustainably Produced Foodservice Cheese, Milk And Other Dairy…

Choose California

The Foodservice Division of the California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) supports foodservice operators and distributors that use REAL California dairy products. The CMAB offers marketing and promotional support for foodservice operators that purchase dairy products with the REAL California Milk seal, which means they are made with 100 percent milk from California’s more than 1200 family dairy farms using the most sustainable practices in the nation.

California dairy’s reputation for quality drives real sales, profits and repeat business for foodservice operators. California dairy products help restaurants stand out and attract customers. So, whether restaurants menu fresh Mozzarella or dry Monterey Jack, sour cream or ice cream, make sure they feature products that carry the Real California Milk seal. 

As the nation’s leading producer of fluid milk, butter, ice cream and nonfat dry milk, California is truly America’s dairy state. About one-third of the state’s dairy production serves the U.S. foodservice sector, with the remainder going to domestic consumers and the international market.

The state’s cheese production, second in the nation, is also at an all-time high – and growing steadily. The state’s cheesemakers set the pace with creativity as well, making more than 250 varieties and styles of Real California Cheese.

There are more than 78,000 pizzeria restaurants in America and another 100,000-plus restaurants with some type of pizza or flatbread on the menu. Pizza is the largest segment in the foodservice sector. As the leading producer of Mozzarella (as well as Hispanic-style and Monterey Jack cheeses) in the country, California cheesemakers service pizzerias in more than 40 states.
