SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES — Hiland Dairy’s Norman, Oklahoma, plant has earned the Grade A Grand Champion Award for its 2% white milk at the 2023 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest. Hiland’s 2% white milk beat other flavorful dairy products like dips, sour cream, yogurt, and cottage cheese to win the Grade A Grand Champion. The national competition, held over three days, received products from 43 states.

Products in 96 classes included ice cream, gelato, cheese, yogurt, butter, sour cream, fluid milk, whipping cream, cottage cheese, dairy dips, whey, and dried milk. There is also a class for creative and innovative products that grows each year. “We are incredibly proud that our 2% white milk, produced here in Norman, was named the Grade A Grand Champion at the 2023 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest.

This is a testament to our team and our commitment to taste, quality, and freshness, proving our milk is the best of the best,” said Ron Clark, General Manager of Hiland Dairy, Norman, Oklahoma. The grand champions and the first, second, and third place winners for each class will receive their trophies, medals, and ribbons at an award reception and auction on October 3rd as part of the World Dairy Expo in Madison.

The first-place winner’s products are auctioned off that day, with proceeds going to scholarship programs focused on dairy education. John Johnson, a culinary arts instructor at Madison College, is an integral part of the event; John and his students utilize the 2nd and 3rd-place winning products in each class to prepare an award-night reception buffet highlighting the products and the students’ culinary skills. “We congratulate all the winners in this year’s competition and commend them on their excellence.
