St. Albans Cooperative Creamery and Cabot both celebrate a century in business in 2019. An article in the Valley News highlighted the significance of both co-ops in March, featuring future plans and the state of the industry. Cabot started with about 95 members; St. Albans with about 25, according to the article, which says Cabot now has 900 member farms, while St. Albans has 360 members, according to its website.

Cabot, a Vermont cooperative, is looking to roll out dairy-based dog treats sometime in the second quarter of the year, CEO and President Ed Townley told the Valley News. “They’ll be made from the trim left over from processing in Cabot’s own cheese factories, and will be sold in 3-ounce packages,” the article says. This is a part of a new initiative to find new markets for the milk industry, which is seeing an increased interest, despite recent oversupply.

Meanwhile, St. Albans isn’t planning to go into cheese production anytime soon, the article says, “but its leaders are looking for other markets for products like the co-op’s skim milk solids.”
