Valley Queen Advantage

What we hear most from our buyers is that they appreciate our relentless work ethic, flexibility and the feeling that we won’t let them down.

We’re large enough to meet the most demanding requirements and small enough to react quickly to ever-changing consumer trends.

Our Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) products supply a rich dairy flavor and creaminess to a wide range of applications including chocolate, confectionery, and processed cheese.


3.5 million pounds of liquid whey is processed here every day, which is dried into lactose or

whey protein concentrate. Our whey products are used as ingredients for baby formula, candy and nutritional supplements.

Our milk comes from roughly 50 dairies within 80 miles of Milbank. Every day they bring in four million pounds of milk that we turn into 400,000 pounds of cheese. We also ship more than two tankers of liquid cream daily to cream cheese and ice cream plants across the country.
