Substantial Funding Is a Catalyst for Dairy Sector Resiliency. 35 businesses across eight states are selected for funding.
We’re pleased to announce seven recipients of the Dairy Food Safety & Certification Grant. Awards range from $16,000 – $40,000, with a total of $225,000 in overall funding, and allow dairy farmers and processors to take actionable steps to improve the safety of dairy products and improve marketability.

At NE-DBIC, our goal is to help dairy farms and processors innovate to become more sustainable and resilient – so when the unexpected happens (a pandemic and extended supply-chain issues, for instance), you’re equipped to meet those challenges and continue milking, processing, and distributing your dairy products throughout your community and region.
