Little Rock’s Hiland Dairy Foods Company has been recognized for its overall quality by Quality Checkd Dairies, an organization that provides quality assurance and other resources to dairy processors.
Hiland Dairy Foods received the Irving B. Weber Distinguished Award for Quality Excellence on Oct. 15 during the QCS Leadership Virtual Conference. This award recognizes Hiland’s efforts to maintain excellence, in “leadership, culture, production, sustainability, and business ethics,” according to a company news release.
“Our success can be contributed to our 250 employees,” Mike Flagg, general manager of Hiland Dairy Little Rock, said in a statement. “Our mantra, ‘We Keep Score,’ means each employee is vested in the performance of the business and desire to continually improve.”
This is the second time Hiland has received the Weber Award. The company received it in 2018 and was a finalist for the award in 2019.
In addition, Hiland Dairy’s Little Rock facility was received the Production Excellence Award for best milk processing plant and won the orange juice competition for the second consecutive year.
