“With Turner as our distribution partner, we can offer consumers the widest selection of dairy products available in the market place,” said Ed Mullins, Prairie Farms Executive Vice President and CEO. “When shopping for dairy, consumers want options and we’re sure Prairie Farms products, including specialty milk flavors and award winning cultured products, will become household favorites.”
Both Turner and Prairie Farms have been respected manufacturers of high quality dairy products for decades. In 2006, Turner Dairy became a division of Prairie Farms Dairy. However, until now, a limited line of Prairie Farms products were in distribution. The move to expand the line of Prairie Farms products will solidify the synergy between the two well-known brands.
According to Jim Turner, Turner Dairy President, “Turner Dairy customers will continue to enjoy Turner’s milk. The Prairie Farms brand expands the line of products that will be offered in the Memphis market. We will have the same dedicated employees and will continue producing fresh dairy right here in Memphis.”
