Hiland Dairy: A Story of Sustainability

As a fundamental link between the land and its people, perhaps no one is more acutely aware of the delicate balance between the Earth and the ongoing endeavor to extract its riches than the farmer.

So, for us at Hiland Dairy, sustainability – the idea that everything we do is done in such a way as to minimize waste and environmental impact – really is second nature. We do it because our customers demand it. We do it because it makes sound business sense.

But, above all, we do it because it's the right thing to do.

Hiland Milk Contains No Artificial Growth Hormones

For us, sustainability is, at its core, a commitment to producing, processing and delivering dairy products in a manner that improves the state of our land and the lives of our employees, our animals, our communities, our retail partners and our consumers.

    This Means:
  • Reducing, reusing and recycling at every single stage of the production and distribution process
  • Recycling cardboard, paper and plastic
  • Recycling batteries, oil and tires
  • Reducing the use of water and electricity
  • Partnering with vendors who do the same
  • Using innovative thinking to develop programs that not only reduce waste but also improve efficiency while turning waste products into useful materials

In short, it means doing more with less whenever possible, while still producing the highest quality product.

It starts with a simple step and before you know it, all of your efforts to reduce waste and environmental impact really add up.
