Checking In With Turner Dairy

One of our core partners within our FarmSource program is Turner Dairy. Back in 2007, they were the first dairy in western PA to eliminate rBGH from their milk supply. rBGH (recombinant bovine somatotropi) is a genetically engineered artificial hormone injected into dairy cows to make them produce more milk.

Turner’s continues to be a leader in the milk industry with their recent decision to eliminate high fructose corn syrup from their flavored milk, to be replaced with regular sugar. The transition from high-fructose corn syrup was a gradual one, as Turner’s focused on one product at a time to achieve a flavor profile that met their standards.  They started with their Whole Chocolate Milk, Fat Free Chocolate Milk, Fat Free Strawberry Milk and Fat Free Vanilla Milk. Each of these products underwent extensive testing throughout this transition to ensure that the award-winning flavors of each product were maintained.

Not only is Turner Dairy recognized locally for their great product, they also continue to garner awards for their milk on a national level. Most recently, Turner’s Fat Free Chocolate Milk won a “Gold Medal” at the 2013 Los Angeles International Dairy Competition and a “2nd Place Award” in the 2013 World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. Turner’s Whole Chocolate Milk also won a “Gold Medal” at the 2013 Los Angeles International Dairy Competition.

We are proud to serve Turner’s locally-produced, high-quality milk at all of our restaurants.

Until next time,
