Darigold Inc., Seattle, Wash., announced plans to substantially expand its global customer service and international markets by creating an overseas sales, service and distribution network. So far, Darigold opened offices in Mexico City, Singapore and Shanghai.

Darigold projects it will grow from serving roughly 20 countries to serving 40-plus countries in the near future. The company will also offer deeper product customization capabilities along with solutions tailored for customer and country specific needs. More than 40% of Darigold farm milk production goes into export products, and Darigold expects to surpass 50% in coming years, in addition to overall farm production growth.

“We are excited to expand with new in-house international capabilities and better serve our customers worldwide through a direct network,” says Stan Ryan, president and CEO. “With an expanded global team, Darigold can fully realize the potential of providing Northwest dairy products’ unique sustainability, quality, nutrition and taste to the world.”
