Stocks in this article: DF

HILO, Hawaii, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For its excellence in protecting quality from farm to table and in customer service, Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i Hilo plant was awarded the Dean Foods CEO Quality Award for fluid milk. This award is the company's top honor and Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i Hilo was selected over Dean Foods' 70 other dairy plants after a rigorous, one-year judging process.

Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i Hilo Plant Takes Top Prize in Dean Foods National Quality Contest.

Dean Foods CEO Gregg Tanner presented the award to Mel Moniz, Plant Operations Manager, of the Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i Hilo plant on April 22. Tanner was joined by Hilo Mayor Billy Kenoi in acknowledging Meadow Gold's far reaching excellence.

"Dean Foods holds its plants to incredibly high standards, making for particularly stiff competition surrounding this award," said Tanner. "We are delighted with the level of excellence Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i exemplifies, and we're proud to hold them up as an example."

This top honor is the culmination of an intensive assessment process. Three ice cream plants and five fluid milk plants, including Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i Hilo, were selected as Excellence in Quality Award winners based on multiple criteria such as Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program scores, training participation and consumer complaint improvement.

These eight plants were then scrutinized further by Dean Foods' senior leadership who took into account quality innovations, best practices and the "quality culture" within the plant. The Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i Hilo emerged as the cream of the crop in the fluid milk category.

"Our team is committed to providing everyone on the Big Island and throughout Hawai'i with wholesome, great-tasting dairy products every day," said Moniz. "Superior quality has always been a top priority for Meadow Gold Dairies Hawai'i, which is why we are so honored to be recognized as Dean Foods' top fluid milk plant."
