Hiland Dairy Expands Flavored-Milk Lineup and Expands Lactose-Free Options

SPRINGFIELD, MO – Hiland Dairy Foods Company, an award-winning, farmer-owned dairy producer, is releasing four seasonal favorites, just in time for springtime. Made with fresh, pure Hiland Dairy milk from local dairy farmers, the flavors of the season include Orange Crème, Strawberry Crème, Chocolate Marshmallow and Eggnog. Locally made and naturally delicious, these flavors can be enjoyed on their own or added to smoothies, homemade ice cream or coffee for a tasty start to the day.

Hiland also released a new flavor to their lactose-free line, a rich, chocolate lactose-free milk that is available in half-gallon sizes. Hiland Dairy’s Lactose-Free Chocolate Milk began appearing on retailer’s shelves in February.

According to Hiland Dairy’s vice president, Rick Beaman, “Flavored milk caters to consumers’ impulse for indulgence while providing the same nine essential vitamins and minerals as unflavored milk, so it’s a nutritional powerhouse. The lactose-free category is in demand from our consumers, so we wanted to provide a rich, chocolatey flavor that satisfies their craving for flavored milk that is lactose-free.”

Hiland Dairy Chocolate Marshmallow, Strawberry Crème, Orange Crème and Eggnogare now available in colorful quart packages in grocery stores and mass retailers for an MSRP of $3.49-$3.79. These flavors will be available through mid-April.
