Round 1 Grant Winners
Small dairy farms and businesses are receiving much-needed funding from the PCC-DBII. Applications focus on products and methods connected to value-added product development, product line expansion, alternative processing technologies or sustainability enhancement methods that increase profitability.
Vigorous partnerships are key to addressing the significant issues facing the Pacific Coast region’s dairy industry. Our noteworthy network of academic and business partners positions the PCC-DBII initiative to leverage the technical and research capabilities that will power its success. Working together, this coalition can build and prioritize educational pathways paired with learning opportunities that concentrate on technical topics and other areas of critical importance such as supply chain innovation, distribution, packaging, marketing, and branding strategies.
