While it remains a go-to for staples like milk, butter, eggs, and cheese, this aisle has evolved over the years to adapt to new lifestyle changes, food trends, and important dietary needs. The versatility of the dairy aisle caters to dairy lovers and non-dairy lovers alike and provides real ingredients and farm-to-table freshness that consumers are looking for to support their overall well-being.
Just in time for National Dairy Month in June, Chef Jamie Gwen will be available to introduce you to the modern dairy aisle where you can find enjoyable snacks, desserts and more –from cheese sticks and yogurts, to non-dairy alternatives such as almond milk, vegan yogurts, on-the-go packaged snacks, and other plant-based options. She will also discuss ways to incorporate new, versatile, and nutritious recipes into your kitchen to offer something creative and palette-pleasing for everyone.
