A Higher Standard of Quality

Handling with care is what we do.

Created by dairy farmers to bring you the highest-quality milk products you need in the best way possible, they control their materials from start to finish and have a hand in all phases of the process.

CMI processes milk from 30 family-owned dairy farms within the Finger Lakes region, allowing us to monitor all aspects of product integrity and offer a higher level of traceability than other milk product manufacturers.



Our initiatives to care for our environment include shorter transportation distances to reduce our “carbon footprint”, on-site waste water treatment facility, farm implementation of renewable fuel sources, and more.

Why the Finger Lakes Region?

CMI’s processing plant is strategically located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, an area rich with natural resources and conditions ideal for raising dairy cows to ensure a consistent, stable milk supply. All of CMI’s farmer owners are within 40 miles of our plant, which allows fast processing for the freshest ingredients possible.
