National Dairy Month

Are You Getting Enough Dairy?

What is National Dairy Month?

National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937 to promote drinking milk and an excuse to kick off summer with nutrient-rich dairy foods. According to the My Plate Guidelines Consuming dairy products provides health benefits, especially in building and maintaining strong bones. Foods in the Dairy Group provide nutrients that are vital for the health and maintenance of your body. These nutrients include calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and protein.



The NEXDINE Difference:

The great thing about being a client or customer of NEXDINE is that we utilize our Culinary Commitments to promote local and fresh dairy products however more specifically none of our products contain rBST. This means the cows used for our dairy products were not treated with the hormone recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST).


Purchasing from local vendors means the product has less travel time from the farm to your table. All the energy that is used to transport food via planes, trains, trucks, and ships contribute to global warming and unhealthy air quality. Staying engaged with local farms and businesses means a greater sense of community and ensuring that NEXDINE is supporting the local economy.
