BARABOO, WI - Michigan Milk Producers Association (MMPA), Novi, Michigan, and Foremost Farms USA, Baraboo, Wisconsin, announced the two cooperatives have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on March 15.

The MOU incorporates intense focus within the two cooperatives to drive mutual investment to maximize members’ returns on their quality milk.

The MOU formalizes advanced discussions between the two cooperatives to pursue proposed co-investment opportunities which include, but are not limited to, the Middlebury Cheese Company and the recently announced dairy campus in Greenville, Mich.

It also incorporates expanding the current strategic alliance the two cooperatives have had in place since 2014 at the MMPA-Constantine plant with the reverse osmosis investment.

 “This commitment not only includes investments but also creates a marketing partnership that will mutually benefit both organizations. By working cooperatively, we are utilizing each cooperative’s independent strengths,” says Joe Diglio, MMPA General Manager. “Through collaborative efforts, we can avoid investing in redundant assets and allow us to fully optimize our members’ capital investments.”
