What We Stand For

The real values behind real milk

  • California Milk

    California is home to more than 1,300 dairy farms—97% of them family owned. Each farmer works tirelessly to keep their cows content, healthy and producing the highest quality, most nutritious milk there is.

  • Natural Goodness

    Milk does more than build strong bones. Milk’s many vitamins and minerals benefit your overall health, inside and out. From disease prevention to muscle building, milk is an essential part of helping every body thrive.

  • Our Processors

    California’s milk processors are held to the highest standards in the nation, so you can have complete confidence that the milk you’re drinking is the purest and best there is.

Milk has More

Every 8 ounce glass of milk delivers essential nutrients like calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, protein and vitamins A and D.

For All Stages of Life

Milk’s a natural way for adults to improve their health. Milk’s natural protein supports muscle repair and growth, and can even lower blood pressure

Nature’s Ancient Product

Our ancestors knew a good thing, which is why humans evolved to drink milk around 8,000 years ago. We’ve been enjoying the benefits ever since.

Healthy Wallet & Healthy Body

50% More Hydration

Because real milk is full of quality protein, carbohydrates and electrolytes, it hydrates you more than a glass of water or a sports drink—without the added sugar.

Something to Smile About

The calcium in milk helps build strong bones, including your jaw and your teeth.  Both can start to lose density if there’s not enough calcium in your diet.

Nature’s Fire Extinguisher

Capsaicin is the chemical that makes spicy food burn. But milk offers relief. Casein, a chemical in milk, binds to capsaicin and takes away the pain.

Real Milk's Radiant Effects

As we age, the protein in milk enhances skin’s elasticity. Milk also contains retinol, an anti-aging, skin-restoring antioxidant.

Exercise Superfuel

There’s a reason more athletes are choosing real milk after a workout. Not only does milk contain high quality proteins, it also delivers carbohydrates which aid in muscle recovery and growth. And unlike many sports drinks, milk contains no added sugars, fillers or coloring. Top athletes agree—there’s no better fuel than milk. Even if doesn’t come in orange or purple.
