ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Helping kick off June Dairy
Month, Domino's Pizza is extremely proud to join with the dairy industry in
'Delivering Dairy Goodness' – highlighted by events throughout the month of
June and beyond, around the U.S.
The recognized world leader in pizza delivery (NYSE: DPZ), in partnership with
the Dairy Farmers of Utah, will debut the 'Delivering Dairy Goodness' program
at Canyon View Farms in Midway, UT, on June 8.
The "Day on the Farm" event will showcase how farmers create dairy goodness
through their commitment to working hard and producing quality dairy products
– a true way of life on their farms. The day will include a farm tour, petting
zoo and, of course, free pizza.
"We have enjoyed a strong five-year partnership with Domino's that includes
new opportunities through our 'dairy goodness' efforts," said Paul Rovey,
Arizona dairy farmer and chair of Dairy Management, Inc. (DMI), which works to
help protect and build dairy consumption on behalf of America's dairy farmers
and importers. "It is important that we connect consumers across the country
with our farms, and showcase the important work we do to help produce terrific
things – like great-tasting Domino's pizzas."
Domino's and other dairy promotion organizations around the country will
invite the public to additional 'Delivering Dairy Goodness' events – both on
and off the farm – this summer.
"Domino's Pizza is privileged to partner with America's dairy farmers and
importers," said Patrick Doyle, Domino's Pizza president and chief executive
officer. "The 'Delivering Dairy Goodness' events are a terrific way for our
local business owners, along with dairy farm family businesses, to connect
with their communities around the country."
