"You know, it's challenging to simply market an eight-ounce block of cheese. That one block of cheese is really just similar to another. But when we have new products, new brands, new processors that we can bring to retailers, it creates excitement... And I think that these new brands, sometimes they bring new channel ideas...it really it opens up a lot of opportunities for growth."
– Bob Carroll, Vice President of Business Development, California Milk Advisory Board
