Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) is committed to ensuring that our farm members’, employees’ and customers’ health and wellbeing is at the forefront of our efforts. As everyone is well aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has escalated substantially in the past weeks and days. DFA has been actively monitoring the situation and following Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations.
We are dedicated to maintaining supply chain continuity; the fluid milk and powdered milk supply chain is not anticipated to have any substantial impact due to the outbreak. DFA has farm families across the United States providing milk to our manufacturing sites, and multiple plants have the capability to process milk to ensure our customers’ supply chain is not interrupted, even if worst case scenario should occur and a site needs to temporarily cease operations.
