About the California Milk
Advisory Board

When you want sustainably produced foodservice cheese, milk, and other dairy - choose California.

The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is funded by the state’s dairy farm families who lead the nation in sustainable dairy farming practices. With a vision to nourish the world with the wholesome goodness of Real California Milk, the CMAB’s programs focus on increasing demand for California’s sustainable dairy products in the state, across the U.S. and around the world through advertising, public relations, research, and retail and foodservice promotional programs.

The Foodservice Division of the CMAB supports foodservice operators and distributors that use Real California dairy products. The CMAB offers marketing and promotional support for foodservice operators that purchase dairy products with the Real California Milk seal, which means they are made with 100 percent milk from California’s more than 1,100 family dairy farms, using some of the most sustainable dairy practices in the nation.

As the nation’s leading producer of Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and Hispanic-style cheeses, fluid milk, butter, ice cream, and nonfat dry milk, California is truly America’s dairy state. About one-third of the state’s dairy production serves the U.S. foodservice sector with the remainder going to domestic consumers and the international market.

The state’s cheese production, second in the nation, is also at an all-time high – and growing steadily. The state’s cheesemakers set the pace with creativity as well, making more than 250 varieties and styles of Real California Cheese.
