US dairy company Darigold, Inc. has announced an expansion of its organic pool of Northwest farms and expansion of its broad-based organic capabilities and product offerings.

While the company has had organic members for years, and has been processing organic milk and been working with co-pack partners, it is now also working directly with B2B customers to produce custom organic ingredients and with retail and foodservice channels to make packaged organic products.

As a part of this new marketing effort and growth, Darigold is adding organic segregation and processing capabilities to a fourth plant in addition to the existing three. The additional plant will allow the company to offer more organic ingredients, branded consumer products, and co-packed products to meet increased customer demand for a variety of organic options.

The company has also announced the release of Darigold Northwest Organic milk. The milk will initially be sold at select Costco warehouses with plans for further distribution at other retailers in the coming months. It is available in a three-pack of 64oz cartons in whole, 2%, 1%, and skim milk varieties. This week, the cooperative launched Darigold FIT Organic Milk – also initially available at select Costco warehouses.

“Darigold is proud to offer a new local, organic milk option and is excited about the FIT brand extension,”​ said Duane Naluai, president of Darigold’s consumer products.

“Our customers not only expect superior quality nutrition and great taste from all our dairy products, but demand for locally-sourced certified organic products is growing. That is why we continue to expand our milk selections to now include Northwest Organic Milk and FIT Organic Milk from Darigold.”

The coop’s entry into the branded organic segment follows the launches of classic Darigold FIT and Farmer’s Reserve butter. This expansion is part of a larger transformation and growth strategy for Darigold, especially within the global ingredients sector.
