DFA ranks sixth in global dairy

Dairy Farmers of America retained the No. 6 spot in an annual survey of global dairy companies.

Rabobank, a multinational banking and financial services cooperative with headquarters in the Netherlands, released its survey July 9 of the world’s top 20 dairy companies based on 2013 financial numbers. Holding the top position was Switzerland-based Nestle, followed by Danone and Lactalis, both with corporate offices in France.

DFA was also ranked No. 6 in last year’s survey.

Other U.S.-based companies among the list of 20 were Dean Foods, Kraft Foods and Schreiber Foods.
