Visiting the Hood plants in Upstate NY!

Nils Mike hoodOn Friday, August 4th our team headed north to visit two manufacturing facilities of HP Hood.  Hood has been a strategic Dairy partner to Price Chopper for decades; producing many of our Price Chopper and PICS dairy products.

The milk sourced for their Dairy production comes from local farms within a 50 miles radius of the plant. We’re proud of our local roots and being able to source #homegrown milk for our Price Chopper Greek yogurt!  The team also toured ESL processing plant in Oneida, NY where Hood branded creams, coffee creamers, and a variety of plant-based and lactose-free milks are made and packaged. The tour of the facilities was nothing short of impressive! Hood’s dedication to quality, innovation and service was evident in their state-of-the-art operation!

HP Hood is one of the largest branded dairy operators in the U.S. as well as an experienced leader in ESL (extended-shelf-life) & aseptic processing and packaging.

Thanks to the team at HP Hood for inviting us in! We had a great day moo-ving around the plants!
