Dairy products other than cheese and butter such as milk (California Sunshine), ice cream (Coolhouse Awesome Ice Cream), and yogurt (GlenOaks Drinkable Yogurt) are offered in membership shopping outlets and groceries nationwide.

To get only the best in dairy, consumers can check products for the Real California Milk Seal. The seal ensures that dairy products like milk, cheese, butter, ice cream and drinkable yogurt are made from 100% California cow’s milk. That’s a guarantee of top quality and great taste as California is now the U.S.’ largest milk producer.
