NMPF Member Coops Celebrate Milestone Anniversaries

For two dairy cooperatives, 2009 and 2010 have been and will be big years for them and their members.

Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA), headquartered in Tillamook, OR, is wrapping up its 100th anniversary this year. Formed as a farmer-owned cooperative in 1909, TCCA has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s premier makers of cheese. TCCA markets an extensive line of dairy products, including naturally aged cheddar and a variety of other cheeses, butter, premium ice cream, sour cream, and yogurt.

Another NMPF member coop, United Dairymen of Arizona (UDA), will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2010. Located in Tempe, AZ, UDA is an agricultural milk marketing cooperative that was incorporated in 1960. UDA produces high, medium, and low heat nonfat dry milk (including vitamin fortified products), MPC, cream, butter, skim milk, condensed skim milk, and lactose powder. The cooperative is among the few remaining full service dairy coops in the country. Find out more about UDA at their website at
