Springfield, Missouri-based Hiland Dairy has launched an improved squeezable package for its all-natural sour cream. The bottle, which is recyclable, will begin appearing on store shelves mid-to-late June.
According to the company, the package has a space-saving design with a flip-top cap that keeps the bottle upright. By minimizing the amount of air exposure, the design helps to maintain the product’s freshness.
Hiland’s sour cream can be squeezed from the package without utensils, ideal for topping potatoes, tacos and other dishes. In addition, the company said the bottle is more practical than the previous flexible pouches, which tended to tip over on store shelves or refrigerators.
Hiland Dairy’s products include milk, dips, cottage cheese, flavored milk, sour cream, ice cream, butter, cheese and eggnog. In addition, it has expanded beyond dairy and produces and distributes various other beverages, such as Red Diamond Tea, lemonade and fresh juices.
A farmer-owned company, Hiland Dairy has more than 4,000 employees throughout Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas. Hiland’s farmer-owners are just miles from its processing plants, where the milk goes from the farm to the shelves within 48 hours.
