Milk Specialties Global announces its certification to manufacture organic whey proteins, which complements its existing portfolio of organic products.
As of June, Milk Specialties has three plants certified organic: Visalia, Calif.; Mountain Lake, Minn.; and Norfolk, Neb. All are certified under the US National Organic Program by OCIA International Organic Certification. This certification allows Milk Specialties to produce organic MPC 70, MPC 80, MPC 85, MPI 85, MPI 90, NFDM, Permeate, Lactose, Cream and most recently, WPC 80.
Milk Specialties saw tremendous growth in the organic space since the first plant was certified this past April, which led to two additional facilities getting certified. “We currently have customers using our organic Milk Proteins and they see the benefits and selling power of organic. This buzz and excitement led to a demand for organic whey products which we are excited to be able to bring to our customers,” Dustin Cosgrove, director of business development, explained.
