The award, which was launched in 2017 to acknowledge dairy processor partners for their response to hurricane victims in Texas and Florida, recognizes individuals and partner organizations for contributions to the California dairy industry that go above and beyond. Finocchio was presented the wooden plaque at this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, CA.

The award is presented annually to those who promote California dairy farm families as well as California dairy in general. Past recipients include Cacique, Inc., the California Dairy Quality Assurance Program (CDQAP), FitPro, Pacific Cheese, Rizo Lopez, and Super Store Industries.
