Eberhard’s Dairy Products was awarded the top prize from Oregon Dairy Industries for 2020: The Fluid Milk Sweepstakes!


Each year, Oregon Dairy Industries evaluates dairy products within the Pacific Northwest and recognizes companies who have made outstanding contributions to the dairy foods industry to promote the production of high-quality dairy products in the Pacific Northwest. The Fluid Milk Sweepstakes prize is awarded to the company with the highest scores for three of the milk categories: skim, reduced fat, and whole milk. Eberhard’s was also honored with the Fluid Sweepstakes Award award in 2016 and 2018. In addition to the top prize, Eberhard’s received second place awards for its locally beloved Egg Nog and Chocolate Milk.

Mark Eberhard, President and General Manager, credits the entire team for the excellent products saying, “We work together as a team to ensure the best dairy products on the market: from our production and warehouse staff to our front office and delivery teams, each person is a vital part of this win. We are thrilled to once again receive this recognition from Oregon Dairy Industries.”

Moo Moo Belle is celebrating the win!
